Join the UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Foundation on Thursday April 7, 2016 at the Annual Dinner. Proceeds from the event will support Alzheimer’s disease research, education and clinical programs at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging. This year, the Foundation welcomes Captain Jim Lovell as our Keynote Speaker and Special Guest. Captain Lovell is a great American Hero, most famous for his role in the American space age with his calm and careful command of Apollo 13. Lovell stoically articulated the five-word message “Houston, we have a problem” which quickly became a part of the American lexicon. Captain Lovell’s inspirational story is a testament to the essential elements of heroism: a courageous spirit, quick and well-reasoned thinking, meticulous attention to every detail, and the spirit of teamwork that guided him and his crew safely back to earth. Hear from the hero himself and help us eliminate the problem of Alzheimer’s disease.
