Growing a garden. Becoming a citizen scientist. Reforming health care. Becoming an antiracist. Online classes on these topics and others are being offered this spring through the Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) at Ohio Wesleyan University.

  • The Long Road to Health Care Reform
  • How Does Your Garden Grow?
  • Become a Citizen Scientist!

  • The Role of the First Lady
  • Healthy U: Chronic Pain Self-Management
  • How to Be an Antiracist – Part 2: Theory into Practice
