64 year-old Diana Nyad, who splashed into the spotlight after swimming from Cuba to Florida in 2013, is scheduled to speak at USI's Mid-American Institute on Aging on August 14 and 15.

MAIA is a conference for health professionals and the community that covers topics ranging from exercise and nutrition to identity theft.

Nyad swam over 100 miles for about 53 hours when she completed the swim last year. It was her fifth attempt.
