Continuing our season theme of WISDOM, this session will extend our inquiries into the practical steps each of us can take to become wiser – informed by the presentation on this subject by Prof. Ursula Staudinger earlier in the week, on Monday, March 2, 7:00 pm.  What does it take to make wiser decisions in our personal and family relationships, our learning and professional lives, and our health and well-being?
