About Catherine Geering


Catherine Geering, CNP, was a nurse practitioner, a tireless advocate for women, colleague and dear friend who passed away after her battle with leukemia in 2015. She was a passionate advocate for women’s health especially sexual health and women’s mid-life health issues. Together with Lisa Larkin, MD, Catherine launched the sexual health clinic within the UC Health Women’s Center with the goal of raising the standard of care of women in this area of unmet medical need. She was a warm, compassionate, dedicated and skilled clinician who made a huge impact on everyone she cared for. The Catherine Geering Annual Community Sexual Health lecture is to honor this wonderful woman’s memory, professional efforts, and the contributions she made in our community.
