2011/2012 NAQC Seminar Series  

Considering recent national policy initiatives in Canada and the U.S., the focus of the 2011/2012 NAQC Seminar Series will be topics related to preparing for implementation of graphic health warning labels, working with Medicaid to ensure access to cessation and building public-private partnerships.
Webinars as part of the Seminar Series will take place one time per month from December, 2011 through July, 2012. In addition to Seminar Series webinars NAQC will host webinars on emerging issues periodically throughout the year, giving ample notice to members to ensure maximum participation. Recordings of all NAQC webinars and their ancillary documents will be posted to the NAQC member-only Web site for members who are not able to participate.
