The Physician Advocacy Network, a project of the Twin Cities Medical Society, is looking for Advocacy Ambassadors for the 2018 school year from the University of Minnesota's Medical School, School of Public Health, and College of Pharmacy to lead their peers in local tobacco policy engagement with a focus on Tobacco 21.

Advocacy Ambassadors will commit to increasing awareness and engagement among student peers about current tobacco policies by implementing activities organized by the Physician Advocacy Network. Activities may include:

  • Social media engagement,

  • Hosting a postcard signature drive in support of Tobacco 21,

  • Recruiting students to attend Minnesotans for a Smokefree Generation's Day at the capitol, and

  • Engaging students in support of other statewide tobacco control legislation.

Advocacy Ambassadors will receive a $50/month stipend from October to May in exchange for their involvement and leadership.

Our 2018 Advocacy Ambassadors have been selected, but if you’d like to receive updates about how you can stay engaged in tobacco policy in Minnesota, please complete the form below. Questions may be sent to Amber at
