Today’s call (February 9, 2012) will feature Jack Boomer (BC
Lung Association) and Frankie Best (BC Ministry of Health) who
will be speaking on "Incorporating Social Media Technologies into Cessation
Services .” They will talk about the lessons they learned to incorporate
social media into their suite of cessation services, experiences they have had
to date, and the impact of social media. They will identify potential research
opportunities that may be of interest to the quitline community. For more

This webinar is part of NAQC’s "Coffee Break”
series, a monthly 30-minute webinar designed to serve as an informal forum to
discuss current, upcoming, and potential quitline-related research; facilitate
communication and interaction between researchers; and create and support
connections between researchers and quitlines. Typically, the presenter gives a
10-15 minute presentation on a newly published research article, a new
methodology for conducting research or collecting data, a description of a newly
funded study, etc. There are 10-15 minutes at the end of each presentation for
questions. The calls are scheduled 2:00 to 2:30pm eastern time on the second
Thursday of each month. To join the mailing list to receive information about

presentations are available here.
