This month's program examines international influences on the Ozarks from a historical and cultural perspective. We'll discuss settlement patterns and the cultural legacies that remain from these early groups that came to the Ozarks. Our guests will be musician and author Gordan McCann and Missouri State University History Professor Brooks Blevins. MSU Vice President of Research and Economic Development Dr. Jim Baker will co-host the program with KSMU's Missy Shelton.
Research shows that learning something new and gaining new skills are important ways to keep your brain active as you age. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports on a variety of continuing education programs in the Springfield area that are geared toward older adults.
