St. Louis Oasis May/June 2024 Catalog

Registration is Open!

Dear Oasis Friends,

Welcome to another edition of the Oasis course catalog. As you will see, we are bursting at the seams with a wonderful selection of fun, informative, and eclectic classes!

For me, being part of our vibrant community is a daily lesson in finding opportunities to provide you with a rich environment for continued learning and purpose. Exploring new ideas and ways to connect is at the heart of Oasis and this edition of the catalog features many new classes to do just that. If you are interested in the electoral system, take a free tour of the St. Louis County Board of Elections for a behind the scenes look to learn about the crucial role of election judges and how they ensure election integrity (Page 33). The one and only Charlie Brennan joins Oasis in May to discuss his new book with inspiring tales from three decades of conversations with St. Louisans (Page 14). Or you may find Dr. Hedva Levy’s program of classes to master your medications to be particularly enlightening. Dr. Levy is a pharmacist with a passion to help older adults avoid preventable medication related challenges (Page 17).

In 2024, you will receive the course catalog six times a year, instead of three. Feedback from our community told us that you want to hear from us more frequently and the catalog is a key part of our communication with you. As stakeholders in our organization, we listen to your feedback and continuously try to improve. People make Oasis – our participants, our volunteers, our instructors, our Board of Directors and our staff. Working together we can ensure that the future of Oasis and the future for all older adults in our community continues to be bright!

Warmest Regards,

Paul Weiss, PhD
President, Oasis
