Hodges University’s Center for Lifelong Learning to Offer Free Lectures in April on Naples Campus
The Hodges University Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) is hosting 11 lectures at its Naples campus throughout the month of April. Free and open to the public, the lectures cover current events, health and wellness, the arts, literature, technology, creative writing and more.
Some of the available lectures include “Pharmacy Fraud: A Multibillion Dollar Health Care Problem,” which is led by Dr. Miguel Rivera, Hodges’ accounting and finance chair; “Walking in Anne’s Shoes,” led by Dr. Cynthia Gomez, associate professor and director of developmental education at Hodges; “Meditation,” led by Renee Newell, professor of English as a Second Language at Hodges; and “The Crime Scene Effect,” led by Sara Vazquez, crime scene investigator for the City of Naples Police Department.
The CLL is also hosting Koreshan State Park Tour and Lunch from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Thursday, April 14. Guests will take a tour of the historic settlement before enjoying an authentic Koreshan lunch prepared on-site. The cost for parking is $4 for an individual and $5 for a vehicle with up to eight passengers. For lunch and supplies, a suggested cash donation of $10 is requested per individual.
“Our members began telling us how much they would like to have our lectures extend into April as they are staying in the area longer. By offering these free lectures throughout the month of April, we are providing a mixture of various topics and providing people, both members and newcomers, an opportunity to experience what the CLL has to offer,” said Barbara Hawkes, director of the Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning. “Our members remark how our program provides a ‘family feeling.’ They are comfortable in the environment we provide and are able to visit with friends and meet new people.”
The CLL is a member-directed, multigenerational learning community that invites participants to experience diverse, collaborative, life-enhancing intellectual and social activities. The broad-based curriculum includes stimulating discussion groups, lectures, field trips and workshops.
