Michelle Bertucci

Michelle is a student at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and has been a summer student intern for the American Lung Association in Wisconsin’s Spark program, a tobacco awareness program for young adults.  American Lung Association’s mission hits home to Michelle because of her family’s history of tobacco addiction and tobacco-related disease. Spark’s goal is to establish tobacco free college campuses throughout Wisconsin.  Michelle has been working with staff on a campus summit, scheduled for October 30, to educate college administrators on the benefits of tobacco free campuses.  She brings energy, dedication and a much needed student perspective to the effort.  In fall, she will return to Whitewater to lead the campaign to work towards a tobacco-free policy.
