22DST01 The life you can save – 25 August

Chris Quin will cover the ideas set out in Peter Singer’s landmark book ‘The Life You Can Save’ in which he argues that those of us living comfortably in affluent countries have a moral responsibility to help those living in extreme poverty. The course will be presented on Zoom.


22DST02 Living well with hearing conditions – Tuesdays at 10.00 -11.00 am from 30 Aug – 13 Sep

Do people mumble more? Is it harder to hear the TV? Impossible to understand people wearing masks?  Is it you – or is it them?? 

This course will be presented as 3 one-hour weekly sessions on Zoom by Dr Natalie Fletcher, audiologist, researcher, and Education Coordinator at Soundfair, a non-profit organisation passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of people with hearing conditions.

The course will cover the basic biology of hearing, the prevalence and impact of hearing conditions, checking your own hearing, communication strategies, and technology and devices. There will be ample time for questions.


To enrol for these course/s you will first need to join U3A Mornington and select Distance Member as the member type. There will be no charge to attend these two courses.
