Welcoming Diana Nyad to Evansville
"You are never too old to chase your dreams," says 64-year-old endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, who this past fall became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. Diana will bring her inspirational story to this year's Mid-America Institute on Aging (MAIA).
MAIA, co-sponsored by SWIRCA & More is a two day inter-disciplinary gerontology conference for lay persons, nurses, social workers, older adults, and professionals working in the field of gerontology. Each year, national and local speakers provide practical tools and ground-breaking information related to successful aging and gerontology. This year will be no exception.
