Speak in a Classroom Program

The Education Alliance of Washoe County reached out to OLLI to introduce a new program called “Speak in a Classroom.”

They are asking community members who would like to talk to students about their careers or past careers to consider completing the “Speak in a Classroom” form.

Their goal is to create a database of speakers that Washoe County School District educators can invite into the classroom to talk about their experiences and link what is being learned in the classroom with real-world practicality and application.

Elder Cannabis Use Focus Groups

Are you 65 or older? You may be eligible to participate in a focus group study. University of Nevada, Reno researchers would like to talk to you about marijuana use, including CBD-only products.

They are interested in talking to older adults who have never used marijuana, formerly used marijuana and currently use marijuana. This study will be conducted on the University of Nevada, Reno campus at the Sanford Center for Aging.

As a thank you for your time, the Sanford Center will provide you a $40 Visa gift card at the end of the focus group.

If you are interested in participating in the study or if you would like more information, please call (775) 391-4179.
