Greetings from Erich!

Hello All,
My name is Erich N. Pitcher and I am a new staff person at SmokeFree WI. I am very excited to join the team here at SFW as a Policy & Grassroots Specialist. Originally from Ohio I completed my undergraduate training at Antioch College. In keeping with Antioch’s rich history of producing activists and community organizers, I am here to ensure Wisconsin becomes a Smoke-free state. This issue is of interest to me because my mother experienced a major health crisis caused by her own smoking as well as a career working in smoking environments. It is my belief that if Ohio was smoke –free many years ago, she would have quit earlier and it would have had a significant impact on her health. For my mother and for everyone else who has lost or almost lost a loved one I am dedicated to this cause.

Erich N. Pitcher
