2012 marks the 20thanniversary of the California Smokers’ Helpline, the first state/provincial quitline in North America! In an effort to engage the entire quitline community in a celebration of all we have learned, endured and achieved over the past twenty years, NAQC is launching our first blog,Celebrating 20 Years of Quitline History with 20 Questions About our Future.
The blog will feature twenty questions over the next several months that were generated by leaders across tobacco control and will be answered by selected quitline colleagues across North America. We are counting on NAQC members to post their own answers to these questions and responses to blog entries from your colleagues. The blog begins today and the final question will be revealed at the 2012 NAQC Conference! There, conference attendees will engage in a lively, fun, collaborative process to answer the question most focused on the future of quitlines.
