The Aging Network is a group of people that work with the aging population in Itasca County. The purpose of this group is to provide a forum for discussing issues related to the aging population and to share resources and provide education on current age-related topics. The group meets every other month and the individuals who are present will submit news from their organization which is included in monthly minutes from the meeting. These minutes are then emailed to the entire Aging Network, so that everyone can stay apprised of current issues facing the aging population in the Itasca County Area.
