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!

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

AMT - January 13, 2014

OLLI visited Advanced Medical Transport (AMT) in Peoria. AMT is a private, not-for-profit company which serves the people of more than 30 communities throughout Central Illinois. Our personal guide was Kelly Walsh, a Pre-Hospital Registered Nurse who has both the certification to be a Paramedic and a Registered Nurse. She gave us an overview of AMT and discussed the differences between her role as a PHRN as compared to an EMT-Paramedic, EMT-Intermediate, EMT-Basic, and a First Responder. She took us on a tour of the AMT facility on Sterling Avenue, where we got a behind-the-scenes look at some high-tech equipment. AMT has a fleet of 44 different ambulances, some of which are very unique. One such ambulance is that used to transport children to St. Judes in Memphis -- it's even equipped with an Xbox and DVD player. We also learned some amazing facts, including this one: most ambulances have nearly 300,000 miles logged before they are retired. We also had the opportunity to observe their communications center which serves as their dispatch and 2-1-1 center. OLLI enjoyed the visit to AMT and learning more about how they serve the community. OLLI thanks Kelly Walsh and the entire staff at AMT for giving us a tour of their outstanding facility
