One thought on “About”

  1. Dear Dr Bailly,

    I read the cover story about your seminar in the Miami Herald and was surprised to learn that a class like yours exists in Miami. It is so needed!

    I am interested in the seminar Miami in Miami but not in pursuing a degree. I already have one. Do you accept or have other seminar for adult people who are not students at FIU?

    Kind regards,

    Mary Lichtenberger
