Clinicians Dedicated to caring for Minnesota's older adults

MAGIC ACE Resources

Committee Chair: Alison Romstad, DNP


The Metro Alliance of Geriatric Providers formed as a group of geriatric primary care organizations serving residents in long term care, transitional care, assisted living and other senior living communities.

In 2018 the Metro Alliance merged with the Minnesota Association of Geriatrics Inspired Clinicians and became the Clinical Practice Alliance Committee (CPAC).

In the fall of 2021, the CPAC Committee changed their name to MAGIC ACE - MAGIC Alliance for Clinical Excellence.
