Race in 21st Century America

The cause of racial justice is again on the march through American history and on its streets, perhaps giving renewed credibility to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s declaration: “the moral arc of the universe bends toward justice!” To understand the complexity of race in contemporary America, this course will contemplate not only our complicated history but also what we can do here and now to contribute to racial justice and a better future—and the impediments this history generates for this aim.

Prof. Peritz is excited to be able to join you digitally by offering live lecture series available in real-time via the Zoom online meeting platform. During these sessions, we will be able to have real-time discussions and interaction from remote locations.
Virtual 5 Week Session

Fall Prevention Webinar

Reduce Your Risk of Falling and Preserve Your Independence!

Did you know September is Fall Prevention Month?
Join us for this timely lecture. Dot and Bill will discuss what increases your risk for falling, what you can do to reduce your risk of falling, a suggested safety checklist, the tools and resources to preserve your independence. 
Dot Boyd is passionate about helping older adults protect their safety to preserve their independence. In her role as the family caregiver and advocate for her parents, she has first-hand knowledge and understanding of the challenges we can often face as we grow older. As a Senior Safety Specialist Consultant with Electronic Caregiver, she provides a variety of health and safety devices designed to prevent that from happening to preserve dignity and independence for people of any age.

Bill Essert, a Certified Aging In Place Specialist & licensed contractor, traces his work with seniors a few years back when his mom, Mary lost her balance and took a bad fall. Before she returned home from the rehab facility he retrofitted her home with safety and independence in mind. He designed and installed custom railings, grab bars, and ramps.  What began as a call to family became a vocational call and the inspiration for Bay Grab Bar. In addition to running BGB, Bill is a volunteer for St. Joseph Health, and Vintage House just to name a few.
