Anne M. Hartman, M.S., M.A., is a Biostatistician/Program Director in the Tobacco Control Research Branch of the Behavioral Research Program. She previously worked in the Risk Factor Monitoring and Methods Branch of the Applied Research Program (now called the Healthcare Delivery Research Program). Her recent work has focused on cancer risk factor tobacco control and sun protective behaviors/artificial UV exposure surveillance, using various national and state surveys to track long-term trends in cancer control progress (e.g., NCI's Cancer Trends Progress Report); creating summary indices of state tobacco control policy, smokers' level of tobacco addiction, smoking cessation, children's exposure to secondhand smoke, sun protection behaviors, and dietary patterns; and evaluation of non-randomized tobacco control intervention studies (e.g., ASSIST). Beginning in 1991, Ms. Hartman has been directing a series of Tobacco Use Supplements (TUS) to the Labor Statistics and Census Bureau's Current Population Survey (CPS). TUS-CPS provides valuable state-specific public-use information on 240,000 individuals.

Previously (1982-97), in NCI's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (now DCP), her early leadership role co-directing major chemoprevention trials (e.g., Finland-U.S. ATBC Study and ISO-BCC Skin Cancer Prevention Trial) involved planning size and scope, developing and testing dietary and sun exposure assessment instruments, and evaluating study results often utilizing new analytic techniques and interpretation in light of measurement error. Her 1982 Georgetown University (GU) biostatistics M.S. involved developing methods for creating food frequency questionnaires measuring nutrient sources relevant to cancer prevention for NCI's DCEG (formerly DCCP). She worked at GU, Johns Hopkins University (JHU), and University of Maryland Medical Schools after receiving her 1978 JHU Biology M.A. on an NIH scholarship. She received her 1973 Biology BS from SUNY at Stony Brook. She has co-authored more than 60 publications/book chapters, has served on Steering Committees and Expert Panels of national and international studies, and earned three NIH Merit Awards.
