Welcome to our new Advisory Council members and thank you to outgoing members

Welcome to our new Advisory Council members and thank you to outgoing members!

On behalf of NAQC, I would like to welcome our new Advisory Council members as well as to thank those who have completed their terms and are rotating 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. Members have helped to identify critical topics for improving the quality of quitlines and have approved reports on the selected topics. These reports have been instrumental in moving the field forward. The Council also participated in NAQC’s strategic discussions about graphic health warnings and the national tobacco education campaign. During 2012/2013, we hope the Council will have a strategic focus on quitline referral programs and the future of quitlines.
