Dr. Cindy Miner (seen with Galley) moved from NIDA to the Center for Tobacco Products at the Food and Drug Administration in 2011---where she helps to communicate tobacco research information that goes out to other scientists, doctors and nurses, and to the public. Because she is an expert in tobacco, she continues to join us for CHAT DAY to answer some of your questions on cigarettes and other tobacco products. Dr. Miner went to George Washington High School (in Denver) where she played on the tennis team, loved history and English, and of course--gym class. She was a metro area all-star in softball but that’s not all! As a teenager, she also loved biking, hiking, whitewater rafting, and camping in the Colorado Mountains—in fact, she has climbed most of the 14,000 foot peaks in Colorado. Cindy has two dogs—Portuguese Water Dogs, and she continues to enjoy many outdoor activities--including biking, hiking, skiing, kayaking, sailing, softball, volleyball, and golfing.
