NAQC Webinar Series Calendar - 2012/2013

Thursday, January 31, 2013  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

Since 2004 NAQC has used conference call and webinar technology to offer members and partners an opportunity to dialogue with colleagues and experts from across North America on critical quitline-related topics. As always, each webinar will serve as a vehicle to encourage dialogue on promising and better practices, new research findings, and implementation successes and challenges in order to improve quality, increase understanding of the evidence base, and ensure maximized access, use and effectiveness of quitline services.

Webinar topics in the 2012/2013 series will focus primarily on the impacts of healthcare reform, national promotion efforts (including graphic health warning labels and media campaigns), and emerging technologies on our work – as a quitline community and as members of the broader tobacco control community.

Webinars will 1.5 hours long and hosted on one Wednesday each month.

Please email Tamatha Thomas-Haase at should you have any questions or concerns related to the webinar series. We look forward to your participation!
