AROOSTOOK COUNTY - I ran a surprise 5K race this weekend. The “race” part was the surprise, because I didn't pay much attention when registering for the event.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - I recently had the opportunity to speak at the 10th Annual Geriatrics Day Conference at Maine Medical Center in Portland. The fact that this is often a sold-out conference with a waiting list illustrates the importance of aging issues to medical professionals throughout our State. With Maine being the oldest state in the nation by median age, the active involvement of health care providers is essential, and it was an honor to meet with them.
