NAQC would like to thank Dr. Amy Lukowski (National Jewish Health), Dr. Scout (LGBT HealthLink) and the participating state quitlines for their expertise and leadership efforts in moving forward with a field test of the enhanced LGBT question for NAQC’s MDS. The field test is scheduled to launch April 1st and will be applied to both intakes conducted by telephone and online enrollments.
