    Lake Nona - Medical City, located just South of the Orlando International Airport in Florida, is quickly becoming an epicenter for Medical Care and Research. As this area continues development, the design and construction of its buildings, many full scale hospitals and other related facilities, are currently underway.

    AAH Lake Nona - Medical City is very much needed as an independent component in order to help contribute with the fast-growth of this beautiful and sustainable new community.

    Join us for our Inaugural Meeting on Friday September 1, 2017.

    Some of us who are aging might find ideas and hope with any findings you report from there.  Will you be offering news to the aging lay or medical public?
