U3A Ellesmere is a University of the Third Age group in Canterbury, New Zealand. It meets at the Lincoln Events Centre, Meijer Drive, Lincoln on the fourth Wednesday starting at 10am. When there are five Wednesdays in a month we will normally have two related topics on the fourth and fifth Wednesdays.

Our next monthly meeting scheduled for 10am Wednesday 26 August 2020. Professor Steve Chambers will talk on Legionnaires Disease.

Professor Steve Chambers is the former Clinical Head of Infectious Diseases. His research interests relate to diagnostics in respiratory infections, the treatment of infectious diseases and intermediary metabolism with particular emphasis on the relationship between bacterial and human metabolism.

We have several interest groups and more will come with demand and willing helpers. These are based on members’ interests and the availability of leaders for those groups. Find out what groups are being set up here.
