Celebrating 20 Years!

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley University (OLLI) is a group of more than 1,000 individuals, age 50 and over, who learn together through three distinct programs: OLLI Classes, OLLI Learning Trips, and OLLI Study Groups.

Here, members can discuss what they learned, what they enjoyed, and offer suggestions to enhance future program offerings.

Take a look at the photos we're taking, and the discussions we're having as OLLI members.

Whether we're in class, in town, or out of town ... we're on the go, having fun, and constantly learning.

We look forward to reading your comments!

While you're online, be sure to visit our website www.bradley.edu/continue/olli to register for our programs.

Don't forget -- OLLI has its own YouTube Channel, where you can see video clips of Learning Trips, Classes, and Study Groups!

University of Illinois College of Medicine: January 28, 2009

As part of the learning trip to the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria (UICOMP), OLLI members had a rare opportunity to see a demonstration of a human patient simulator.

Located in UICOMP's Donald E. Rager, M.D. Clinical Skills Laboratory, the simulator suite houses an entire family of simulators -- adult, pediatric, and infant. The computerized simulators blink, speak, breathe, and mimic complex human physiological changes in tens of thousands of combinations.

The simulators respond automatically to medical interventions and record a data log of all events. UICOMP Advancement Coordinator Jim Burwitz, who led OLLI members on the tour, said the feedback is essential for a doctor's learning experience. After the training session, doctors can watch their performance with video playback and vitals on-screen in real time.

Mr. Burwitz also took OLLI members to the UICOMP library, which provides a wealth of medical information for doctors and the public.

OLLI thanks Mr. Burwitz and his colleagues at UICOMP for a wonderful learning experience.
