On January 11th, TCMS's Physician Advocacy Network hosted an event called "Have You Looked Upstream Lately" for medical students at the University of Minnesota. The event highlighted the power of physician advocacy in advancing public health and featured local physician and medical student advocates as presenters. Caleb Schultz, MD, MPH, discussed how he led Edina to become the first city in Minnesota to adopt a Tobacco 21 policy, and medical students Alex Feng and Dave Bergstrand shared their experiences advocating for menthol tobacco restrictions in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
