New UMB Academy Goes ALL in for Ongoing Education
August 26, 2020
“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but a lifelong attempt to acquire it.” The quote made famous by Albert Einstein reflects the beliefs behind the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s (UMB) new Academy of Lifelong Learning (ALL).
ALL’s mission is to create and present health and human services academic content to inspire, engage, and educate learners from middle school through retirement. It is built to engage UMB alumni and the broader community in an online forum where more than two dozen subject matter experts answer questions submitted by the general public. The hot topic right now? The novel coronavirus, of course.
Content recently added to the ALL website includes a video in which Jane M. Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean of the University of Maryland School of Nursing, describes what the school and its graduates and researchers are doing to fight the pandemic.
