Dear Colleagues,

Last year, the terms of six Advisory Council members came to an end. These members include:
  • Cindy Connell, Alberta Health Services
  • Emma Goforth, MPH,  Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment
  • Jennifer Singleterry, American Lung Association
  • David Tinkelman, MD, National Jewish Health 
  • Ann Wendling, MD, MPH, Healthways
  • Ann M. Malarcher, PhD, MSPH, Office on Smoking and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
I would like to thank them for their generous service and their  exceptional contributions to the field. During their tenure on the Advisory Council, they contributed to a number of important quality improvement reports, including The Future of Quitline issue paper (and Executive Summary), an update on the medications  issue paper, an issue paper on quitline referral systems and a guidance brief on contingency planning. Most recently, reviewed the current issue paper on quit rates and provided guidance on updating it (due to be published this spring).

Over the last few months, NAQC has recruited new Advisory Council members to serve for the next three years. We are happy to announce and welcome the following colleagues assisting in our future efforts:
