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
