About the Academy of Lifelong Learning

The UMB Academy of Lifelong Learning’s mission is to create and present health and human services academic content to inspire, engage, and educate learners from middle school through retirement.

The UMB Academy of Lifelong Learning is built to engage our alumni and the broader community, and its first focus is an online COVID-19 Response Forum. The COVID-19 Response Forum will create a direct exchange of ideas: You are invited to ask questions via an online form and receive answers from one of our many experts on COVID-19 related topics including infectious disease, virology, wellness, nutrition, stress management, public health, and the care of children and seniors.

We hope that our new Academy of Lifelong Learning COVID-19 Response Forum will be an innovative and meaningful way for us to connect, now and as we emerge from this pandemic. We welcome your questions, thoughts, and ideas to make this forum as valuable as possible for you and your families.

We welcome your comments or feedback.
