Bringing Together Minnesota’s Best Minds in Geriatrics Care and Education

Minnesota Northstar Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program

A goal of the Minnesota Northstar GWEP is to facilitate and strengthen meaningful support and collaboration of key partners in the geriatrics field. The University of Minnesota and eight community partners are working to:

  • Provide greater access to community education in aging and dementia,
  • Improve geriatrics training in health professions, and
  • Transform primary care clinical training and practice sites to provide age-friendly care

We have our mission. We have our funding and partners. What will follow is a carefully crafted plan for meeting our goals. Learn more about the projects.

Minnesota Association of Area Agencies on Aging

Map of Minnesota Planning and Service Areas

The population served by Minnesota Northstar GWEP is Minnesota’s older adults, their families, and their caregivers.

To ensure that we reach this population throughout the entire state, our organizing footprint will be the Minnesota Association of Area Agencies on Aging, comprising the seven AAAs that cover all 87 counties and the Chippewa Tribe in Minnesota. The dashboard on the front page of the GWEP website will be regularly updated with our progress throughout the state.
