Minnesota Celebrates 10 Years of Freedom to Breathe

October 1st marked the 10th anniversary of Minnesota's Freedom to Breathe Act, which gave Minnesotans the right to breathe clean indoor air in restaurants and bars. As we celebrate this momentous public health victory, we'd like to share an article published in Twin Cities Medical Society's Metro Doctors magazine in 2007, celebrating the role of physicians in advancing tobacco control in Minnesota: Reflections on the Minnesota Freedom to Breathe Act: Tobacco, Public Policy and Public Health. Thank you to all of the physicians who worked tirelessly to ensure that today's kids are born with the freedom to breathe!
