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!

Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center- February 4, 2014

OLLI visited Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center in Peoria on Tuesday February 4th. OLLI received a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility that opened in April of 2013. Sarah Johnson, Event Coordinator, gave a tour of the facility and showed the OLLI participants what happens during the daily operations of the facility.

The facility allows many different providers to practice hands on training for many different scenarios. These simulations help the medical personal apply what they know prior to completing the application in real life. The facility has a few types of skills labs that put the core competencies to work for all medical personal.

OLLI participants met Sabeen Admani who is one of the Engineers for the facility. She discussed the innovation of 3-D printing. There was also Heather King, Anatomical Coordinator, who discussed how surgeons can prepare for surgery through a lab at the facility. The facility brings in pig and human cadavers to assist the surgeons in preparation.

OLLI would like to thank Sarah Johnson, Sabeen Admani, and Heather King of Jump Trading and Simulation Center for an amazing tour! To learn more about Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center click here.
