Dr. Kathy Black, Professor of Social Work and Gerontology, made an appearance on ABC7’s Suncoast View afternoon talkshow last week to discuss her work with the Age Friendly Sarasota initiative and how the community can get involved.

Age-Friendly Sarasota is an initiative to engage government, businesses, organizations and people of all ages to build a lifelong community by developing a more livable environment. The Age-Friendly Sarasota initiative seeks to build upon our community’s assets and citizens’ aspirations to optimize active, healthy and engaged living for persons throughout the lifespan. Age-Friendly Sarasota is Florida’s first World Health Organization age-friendly community.
