LAKE WASHINGTON BRANCH MEETING
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10TH, 2018
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Washington offers adults over 50 the opportunity to hear and interact with UW faculty and community experts. Natalie Lecher, Director of the Institute, will talk about the institute and its many thought-provoking subjects as well as how we can take advantage of this fertile intellectual environment in our own communities.
Natalie has been the director since 2011 and before that worked in the nonprofit field with volunteers and in the education field as an elementary teacher. When Natalie is not trying to find UW professors to teach classes, she has two teen-aged sons and a giant schnauzer that keeps her busy.
Natalie is joined by long time member Helen Oppenheim who started the Trilogy on Redmond Ridge Lunch and Learn program. She has developed programming that caters to the participants. She has attended both local programs and the National Conference where she shared best practices and took home new ideas.
