Since its inception, the UW TSP has awarded a total of $88,600 in 21 fellowships and 21 career development stipends to 34 student scholars. We are currently supporting four scholars for the 2011-2012 academic year. The UW TSP course offerings have been taught for the past 9 years to over 200 matriculated students and auditors, and over 500 unique drop-in visitors. Additionally, over 1,000 unique health and medical professionals have attended UW TSP sponsored seminars and continuing education courses. A paper documenting many of these accomplishments is published in a special issue of Public Health Reports:
Savage, S.E. & Halperin, A.C. (2006). Building an academic tobacco control program while forging links with practice: the University of Washington Tobacco Studies Program. Public Health Reports, 121, 529-537.
