Minnesota State Ambassador
What's Happening Now?
Attention Minnesota Advocates!
Want to learn more about the Minnesota Rare Action Network and how you can get involved? Come out and meet your Minnesota State Ambassador at the Southdale Library the last Thursday of every month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm! It is a great time to network with other advocates and discuss issues facing the Minnesota Rare Disease community. Please RSVP to Erica Barnes, email@example.com
Would you like to volunteer to assist in hosting a local community awareness event? Do you have an opportunity for Minnesota’s Rare Action Network to attend your event? Contact your State Ambassador today and learn more. Please check back regularly for news of upcoming events and activities in Minnesota.
State Report Card
In this third edition of NORD’s State Policy Report Card we are seeking to expand our analysis to more issues that affect the rare disease community while also providing a more targeted analysis of policies analyzed in previous editions of the report.
Scoring for State Policies

C: State policy on the given issue meets minimum standards
D: State has some policy in place, but it does not meet the standards of higher tiers
