Osher Institute to provide off-site programs at Belmont Village communities


Belmont Village, Sabre Springs

In an effort to reach out beyond its UC San Diego campus setting, The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute has announced a first-time alliance with Belmont Village and its two senior living complexes located in San Diego’s North County.

Under the arrangement, Osher at UC San Diego, an educational and cultural program for retirees aged 50 and over, will provide on-site presentations offered both to residents and non-residents of Belmont Village communities in Cardiff-by-the-Sea and Sabre Springs.

In a key element of the arrangement, Osher’s new “Affiliate” membership will be made available to Belmont Village residents and non-residents alike for $25 a year.

Affiliate members will have access to Osher’s online video library of lectures and presentations featuring UC San Diego professors and community leaders.

The new program will be officially launched June 18-19 with two on-site presentations by Dr. Henry Powell, M.D., D.Sc., UC San Diego professor emeritus of pathology.

Professor Powell, who received his doctorate of medicine from the University College in Dublin, Ireland, will give lively lectures devoted to one of his favorite topics: "Ireland’s Centenary: An Exploration of Irish History."

In addition, attendees will hear first-hand from Osher staff members about the new affiliate membership.

“Under this plan, we’re able to extend our programs of life-long learning to more of the seniors we serve,” said James Forcier, director of Osher, a program of UC San Diego Extension. “Belmont Village has a well-deserved national reputation for providing the finest in senior activities, programs, and care.”

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a program of UC San Diego Extension.
