Tobacco- Free Kids announces their 2017 Youth Advocates of the Year, whose passion and leadership will help make the next generation tobacco-free!
They were recognized this week at our annual gala with more than 400 public health, business, civic, and political leaders present.
Hannah Martuscello – 16, Dover, NH
As a member of Dover Youth to Youth, Hannah educates her peers and advocates for strong public policies. She’s gotten big results: Her testimony before the Dover City Council led to unanimous adoption of an amendment to include e-cigarettes in the city’s smoke-free policy, and her advocacy efforts led to the removal of prominent tobacco ads along the major bus route to three local schools. She also leads an annual summer training program for her youth group focused on tobacco prevention.
