The planning committee of the Ottawa County Task Force on Aging recently met to finalize details for the Third Annual Summit on Aging in Ottawa County.
This group, led by Judge Kathleen Giesler, has helped raise awareness of the issues faced by the aging population in the county.
The summit will be held on Oct. 31 this year at the Magruder Hospital Conference Center from 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
The conference will feature two national speakers, Dr. Robert Putnam and Dr. Georgia Anetzberger. The previous summits have resulted in the development and distribution of the Ottawa County Senior Abuse Protocol as well as the Volunteer Guardianship Program.
