Honoring those who exemplify graceful aging.
On Saturday November 22, we will recognize and honor the top nominees for the 2014 William R. Markesbery Senior Star Awards. We look forward to this event and the opportunity to celebrate these wonderful individuals who exemplify graceful aging and serve as inspirations to others to remain engaged in life and the pursuit of personal goals.
The Senior Star awards are named in honor of the Center’s founding Director, William R. Markesbery, MD. Dr. Markesbery, who passed away in early 2010, founded the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging more than 30 years ago, and was recognized as an international leader in research to advance the understanding of Alzheimer's disease. Carrying forward his name with this award is one small way to recognize Dr. Markesbery and his many contributions to the Center on Aging and, more importantly, his contributions to uncovering the secrets of devastating brain diseases. In addition to all his scientific accomplishments, Dr. Markesbery was best known as a caring, compassionate clinician, a brilliant researcher and a tremendous leader.
Help us celebrate these energetic, active, civic-minded individuals by attending and/or sponsoring this wonderful event. Individual Tickets can be purchased online.
Sponsorship Opportunities are available beginning at $500.
