On September 7 at the Marriott Griffin Gate, the University of Kentucky Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Foundation will be hosting their 24th annual dinner featuring Jim Host as the guest speaker. For those of us who are local we are quite familiar with the great work of Jim Host. He is the founding chairman of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games and the founder, former chairman and CEO of Host Communications. I have had the pleasure of working with him on a number of levels during my career at UK, CHA and state government.  It is an understatement to say that he has a strong work ethic and high energy level.  I am sure his remarks at the event will demonstrate that as well. I look forward to attending to hear Jim's remarks. The Center on Aging is doing a lot of great work and its reputation extends to an international level. This will be the first annual dinner for the new executive director of the Sanders-Brown Center; Dr. Linda Van Eldik.  I am confident that Dr. Van Eldik will be impressed by the attendance, which will be indicative of the level of community support for the Center.

A recent press release highlights Jim Host and the upcoming annual dinner. I encourage you to read the release and visit the UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging to learn more about the important work they do and how relevant it is to us in the baby boom generation!
