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 a week day evening as we invite a series of guest speakers for 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.

A Mental Health Conversation
Celebration of Self

May 2022
Zoom Webinar

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, Keiro invites you to Speaker Series: A Mental Health Conversation. This Speaker Series will take place over a series of presentations throughout the month of May.

This series’ goal is to discuss how and why a healthy mental health benefits one’s aging experience on a physical, mental, and emotional level. The event will feature speakers who specialize and advocate for mental health, such as Dr. Maria Claver (Ph.D., MSW, CPG), Director of the Gerontology Program at California State University, Long Beach. Additionally, Virtual Keiro Forums will be offered in tandem with each featured speaker to dive deeper into the speaker’s topic and provide real-life applications and examples. Let’s begin the conversation about mental health together.

Stay tuned for more information!


Registration will open Monday, April 4, 2022
