|NAQC Annual Report
We’ve come a long way since NAQC’s inception as a special program of the American Legacy Foundation in 2004. Calls to quitlines have doubled; referrals to quitlines from healthcare providers have increased by more than 80% in the U.S. and 900% in Canada; and the number of quitlines offering proactive counseling has increased 50%.
But these events did not happen by themselves. They took time, work, and leadership. The remarkable progress we’ve made would not have been possible without the generous support of our funders, commitment from partners, and the unparalleled enthusiasm of the quitline community.
Our annual report
celebrates this ongoing collaboration. Your expertise, ideas, and energy fuel NAQC’s ongoing commitment to the enhancement of quitlines across North America. Together, we continue to build sustainability, focus on improved practices, and implement strategies to ensure continued success.
Thank you for your many contributions to NAQC. We greatly appreciate them. Please contact me
with any questions or ideas you may have as we continue our work together.
