Olmsted County Tobacco 21 (T21) Coalition

We are a coalition of people and organizations in Olmsted County dedicated to reducing the harm caused by tobacco. We share the common goal of increasing the tobacco sales age to 21 because: 95% of adult smokers started before the age of 21. Raising the tobacco age will prevent youth from starting to use tobacco and stop 30,000 Minnesota kids from becoming smokers over the next 15 years. Cigarette smoking remains the largest cause of disability, death and preventable disease in Minnesota, killing more than 6,300 residents each year. Smoking hurts our economy and is a burden for businesses, annually costing Minnesota more than $3 billion in excess health care costs and $4 billion in lost worker productivity. For the first time in 17 years, youth tobacco use has increased in Minnesota fueled by an increase in e-cigarette use. Eighteen percent of high school students report purchasing e-cigarettes directly from retail stores.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
