Youth Advocacy Associate at the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids
Position: Youth Advocacy Associate
Michelle Lee became involved in tobacco control 2 years ago. Through internships at a state and a local health department, she learned and evaluated comprehensive tobacco-control policies, analyzed the correlation between youth tobacco use and a variety of health and demographic factors, and learned about the manipulative marketing tactics by tobacco companies. She also joined a group of peers at Baylor University to help advocate for a comprehensive Smoke-Free Waco.
Through it all, she’s consistently seen the value of the presence of youth and understands their vital role in the tobacco control movement. She is currently the Youth Advocacy Program Associate at the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids where she provides administrative and programmatic support to ensure successful execution of youth advocacy programs and projects.
