Monitoring Tobacco in LGBT Communities

Hi, I’m Joseph Lee, and I’m a member of the Network’s Steering Committee, and I’m representing the Network’s effort to better collect (and share) wisdom from the community.

This week, I’m asking for your help identifying projectslessons learned, and stories from your work on collecting information to document and track the tobacco epidemic in our communities.

You can see an overview of our process.

We’re seeking your stories about how this has worked for you, what worked, what you learned, and what other states and organizations should know.

We have some of this information in our resources page, but I’m certain we’re missing things.

I know about projects in/by: Baton Rouge, CA state surveys, ID, MO, National Transgender Survey, NC, NM, NY, Ohio focus groups, Oregon Pride, Portland, NYAC youth survey, Toronto, VA transgender assessment, and WV.  (Tracking industry marketing and products is a different week.)

If you have or know about* a project collecting data, surveying the community, or working on state health surveys that’s not on that list, please let me know.

Please submit stories, details, resources, etc. on this subject or e-mail them to: lgbtmpowered@gmail.com.  Or just let us know that so-and-so knows details and we’ll follow up with them.  Or check out our handy data collection page and click through it.

PS: On Friday, we will be giving out prizes to a random selection of people who’ve provided us with stories and resources by Thursday afternoon.

* Also let us know if you know someone who knows someone who might know about something related to…
