Marilyn Davidman, Estelle Rosen and Earl Ofari HutchinsonAnnual Report shows how Oasis is changing the story for older adults

Marilyn Davidman of Albuquerque and Leanna Clark of San Diego both had plenty of reasons to stay on their feet. Oasis fall prevention classes got them back to the activities they enjoyed.

Estelle Rosen of St. Louis formed a lasting bond with a young student she worked with 19 years ago, who has since finished her degree to become a teacher.

Earl Ofari Hutchison of Los Angeles enjoys the fierce but civil debate among Oasis students in the current events discussions he leads on hot topics like politics and the economy.

The 2016 Annual Report has these and more stories of how Oasis
 is helping people stay healthy, continue learning and be engaged
 in their communities. The report is available online at
