ALABAMA A&M UNIVERSITY, Ala. – It’s time to register for 2022 spring courses through the Virginia Caples Lifelong Learning Institute (VCLLI) at Alabama A&M University. To reduce the possible spread of COVID-19, and to keep people safe, all spring classes will be held virtually.

What’s new?

This year, the VCLLI has an exciting lineup of new courses and some returning favorites too. This year’s line-up includes courses, such as The Balm in Gilead’s prediabetes program, virtual tours and timely caregiving strategies just to name a few.

“We continue to explore innovative approaches to engage and support the needs of senior adults and their families,” said VCLLI Program Coordinator Danielle Rudolph. “While we are featuring new health initiatives, we also plan to incorporate feedback shared by past participants because our programs should be relevant to the needs of program audiences.”

Some spring courses offered are as follows:

  • Join Senior Scientists to build nest boxes, birdwatch and collect data for the VCLLI songbird population recovery efforts.
  • Prep for spring container gardening projects to grow roses and more with Grounds and Gardens.
  • Begin advance planning by taking part in the eight-session Meaningful Monday: Estate Planning series.
  • Learn practical ways to apply culturally relevant heart disease prevention strategies through the new Healthy for Life®. This program is a new health impact model of the American Heart Association and Aramark. It is being offered in partnership with AAMU’s department of family and consumer sciences.
