Markesbery Symposium on Aging and Dementia
This annual symposium is sponsored by the University of Kentucky Sanders-Brown Center on Aging and named for former Center director William Markesbery. The daylong scientific meeting is followed by a half-day community session to which the public is invited free of charge, with breakfast provided. An “Ask the Experts” panel is a popular component of the community session. In 2017, the scientific meeting had more than 160 attendees and the community session drew more than 650 people.
