The Minnesota Prescription Coalition (MPC) was formed in the fall of 2009 as the result of a broad based group of organizations coming together to promote evidence based prescribing and to deal with conflicts of interest issues in medical field.  MPC works to ensure patients have access to quality, appropriate, and affordable medications; increase the evidence-based use of drugs and medical devices in the state of Minnesota; and reduce conflicts of interest between Minnesota prescribers and the pharmaceutical industry.  The coalition is supporting legislation to achieve each of the above.  More info on MPC membership and policy initiatives can be found at
