Save the Date for the Sanders-Brown Center’s Markesbery Symposium

Join Expo partner, UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging for the Fifth Annual Markesbery Symposium on Aging and Dementia on Nov. 20-21.

This two-day program will offer sessions for both the scientific and community audience. Clinicians and researchers from the University of Kentucky and other institutions will come together to share current findings, trends and latest updates on dementia and aging disorders, particularly as related to Alzheimer’s disease.

Last year more than 450 scientists, researchers and laypeople attended the symposium.

The event also includes a luncheon celebrating The William R. Markesbery Senior Stars and the David R. Wekstein Centenarians. The awards honor individuals who are more than 80 (Senior Stars) or 100 (Centenarians) years of age who exemplify graceful aging and serve as an inspiration to others to remain engaged in life and the pursuit of personal goals.
