Below is a list of many of our current TFC Committee members along with their titles and a statement of why they serve on the committee. To get in touch with a committee member simply click on their name.
Malinda Scannell, Co-Chair of the Tobacco-Free Campus Committee
Nurse Practitioner, University Health and Counseling Center
I strongly believe in fostering and promoting a climate of wellness, that enhances one's health and general well being. The hazards of tobacco use and second hand smoke are well documented. A climate free of tobacco provides the safest environment for our community to learn, work and live.
Director, Maine Tobacco-Free College Network (USM Alum, 2006)
My job is to support colleges and universities in being healthier environments by creating tobacco-free campus policies, so I am excited to be supporting USM's effort by participating on their tobacco policy committee.
Research Associate at the Muskie School
As a public health professional and member of the USM community I believe strongly that the University and other places of higher education should promote a healthy and safe environment in which to learn. One such way to accomplish this charge is to provide a tobacco-free community.
