Barbara Kwetz Allan

Barbara joined the Massachusetts Leadership Board in 2012 and has made an incredible mark in less than a year. As the former Air Bureau Director at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), she has invaluable knowledge and experiences that help the Lung Association advocate for air quality policies that protect health. Barbara has testified at public hearings on behalf of the American Lung Association, submitted editorials on healthy air issues to the media, and even attended a weekend retreat in Maine to discuss Healthy Air advocacy strategies. At the 2013 Fight for Air Climb in Boston, she spent the entire day educating participants, volunteers, and their families, on the mission of the American Lung Association.
