On May 6th, Dr. Jennifer Kirby, Assistant Professor, gave a talk on obesity to the local OLLI group – the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Tailored to seniors’ lifestyles, classes are held in the daytime, almost always in places with convenient parking. These courses, lasting three to six weeks, fit the typical senior’s schedule.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Virginia brings together people from various backgrounds who share a common interest in learning and intellectual stimulation. Formed in association with the University of Virginia in 2001 as the Jefferson Institute for Lifelong Learning (JILL), the Institute was inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s own deeply-held belief in, and practice of, education as a lifelong enterprise which invigorates the mind and enriches life.
Thanks for helping to bring health information to our local seniors.
