On behalf of North American Quitline Consortium, I would like to welcome our new Advisory Council members as well as to thank those who have finished their terms and who have rotated off this year. We greatly appreciate the time and effort members contribute to Advisory Council activities.
The Advisory Council is a leadership group that provides guidance and advice on programmatic issues to NAQC. The Council has been instrumental in defining and implementing NAQC’s quality improvement initiative. During the past year, the council finalized the Quit Rate issue paper as well as providing guidance on NAQC programs and services.
Please join me in welcoming new members to the Advisory Council:
