Learn and Lunch for UWRA members and their guests: On February 5, learn from a UW expert at the top of his or her field, then share lunch and enjoy more informal conversation with your instructor and classmates. Topics include the ongoing refugee crisis, the longest-running cohort study on healthy aging, and (literally) ground-breaking work on the role of microbes in the health of our bodies and our planet.

Travel Plus, a travel fair for the 50+ UW community: On February 25, explore opportunities for travel plus something more — education, service, cultural immersion — at this fair, which also includes roundtable sessions for more in-depth information. Learn more here…
