Virtual MAIA Every Thur in August 2020

Every Thursday in August 2020 at 12 noon Central
For a dozen years, the Mid-American Institute on Aging & Wellness has hosted keynote and concurrent sessions on an array of topics to promote health and wellness across the lifespan.

MAIA secured a fantastic line up of speakers this year who agreed to present online due to the constraints presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is a great introduction to MAIA
because registration is FREE
for many attendees this year.

Evansville--in southwestern Indiana, serves as a vibrant hub for healthcare for people in the tristate region (IN, IL, KY). USI and MAIA regularly bring in experts for Continuing Education, but they also invite community members to participate as well.

This year, the MAIA Blue Shirts (organizers) hope that by hosting a Webinar, they can share the nationally recognized keynote speakers with health-conscious and healthcare people from within and beyond their region.
