Lifelong learning is a broad concept that includes both formal and informal activities that enhance our ability to understand the world around us. Join us for one evening each month as we invite a series of guest speakers for monthly presentations to share their areas of expertise. Although some of us may feel that we are “too old” to learn new things, challenging ourselves contributes to the improvement of our wellbeing.
We hope the Keiro Speaker Series will encourage you to pursue ongoing life enrichment.
