"You are never too old to chase your dreams," says 64-year-old endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, who last year became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. Diana will bring her inspirational story to the University of Southern Indiana during the Mid-America Institute on Aging (MAIA).
MAIA, co-sponsored by SWIRCA & More, is a two-day gerontology conference that will provide practical tools and groundbreaking information related to healthy aging. There will be inspirational keynote speakers, as well as multiple sessions on a wide range of topics, including fitness and exercise, nutrition, and identity theft, and coping with illness.
For health professionals, nurses, social workers, employees working in long-term care settings, nursing home administrators, occupational therapists, physical therapists, dental professionals, case managers, caregivers and members of the community.
