Three weeks ago, at its annual meeting in New Orleans, the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), the world's leading organization in survey research and methods, presented its 2017 Policy Impact Award to the International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation Project (ITC), headed by Geoff Fong and his team here in the Department of Psychology at University of Waterloo.
The AAPOR Policy Impact Award acknowledges that a key purpose of opinion and other survey research is to facilitate well informed decision-making. The award recognizes outstanding research that has had a clear impact on improving policy decisions, practice and discourse, either in the public or private sectors.
Congratulations to Geoff and all the ITC team!!
