2010-03-15: Stump the Scientist Challenge

view site

Now many of us are familiar with the name Heather Ryan because she was the lead author on an overview of all LGBT tobacco studies published in 2001. And we were thrilled to find out that Dr. Ryan hasn't stopped collecting every single LGBT tobacco article she's ever found and she's willing to share.

So it's with great pleasure that we debut the newest addition to our library, the Dr. Heather Ryan annotated bibliography of all LGBT tobacco articles ever published! (wonks can even get a citation database from us). To find Dr. Ryan's list, go to

Better yet, to make sure this is 1000% complete we'd like to introduce the "Stump the Scientist Challenge". For the next 60 days, we challenge anyone to find any article from the peer reviewed literature that mentions LGBT tobacco that she hasn't included. Winners will get $50 of free materials from the CA Tobacco Education Clearinghouse. So, put your reading glasses on and get going, because last time I talked to Heather, I swear I heard her say "Bring it!"
