Attention: MAFP members

Breaking News:  Tobacco 21 article from Sun Sailor, Plymouth, MN:  Sun_Sailor_Article_-_Oct_31_.pdf

Local communities are exploring what it means to raise the purchase age for tobacco from 18 to 21 years. Hearing from family physicians on this important issue - called “Tobacco 21” or “T21” is very powerful.

Sign up to be a T21 Champion, and when the timing is right, we'll ask you to contact your elected officials or attend a city council meeting to speak in favor of this policy to reduce youth smoking. We have everything you need to be a champion - we just need your voice!

T21 Champions

  • Julie Anderson, MD, FAAFP
  • Alexandra Gits, MD
  • Robert Koshnick, MD, FAAFP
