Title: Announcement Gibbs Leadership Prize Announcement: Best Manuscript of 2014
Year: 2015
Abstract: The Editorial Board of Women’s Health Issues is pleased to announce that the Charles E. Gibbs Leadership Prize for the best paper published in Women’s Health Issues in 2014 (Volume 24) has been awarded to Hailee K. Dunn, MPH, a PhD student in clinical psychology at the University of Rhode Island. Dunn’s manuscript, “Association between Sexual Behaviors, Bullying Victimization and Suicidal Ideation in a National Sample of High School Students: Implications of a Sexual Double Standard,” was co-authored by Annie Gjelsvik, PhD; Deborah N. Pearlman, PhD; and Melissa A. Clark, PhD. The manuscript was published in Women’s Health Issues Volume 24, Issue 5 (September/October 2014), pages 567-574. In the study, Dunn and her colleagues analyzed data on 13,065 high school students from the nationally representative 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Survey. They found that students who reported having engaged in sexual intercourse were more likely to report having been bullied (at school or electronically) over the past 12 months than students who did not report intercourse experience. They also found that girls who engaged in sexual intercourse were more likely to be bullied than were boys who engaged in sexual intercourse. Students of both genders who reported both engaging in intercourse and being bullied had more than five times the adjusted odds of depression and three times the adjusted odds of suicidal ideation when compared to students who reported neither of these experiences.
