NIDA tasked IQ Solutions to market its Virtual Information Center online resources and information to the education community. In response, IQ Solutions created the NIDA Goes Back to School campaign designed to get NIDA’s resources and information into the hands of school educators and administrators throughout the Nation.
Since 1999, IQ Solutions has provided support for the NIDA International Forum. The Forum fosters international cooperative research and the exchange of scientific information by drug abuse researchers around the globe.
IQ Solutions set out to create an eNetwork for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) that offered providers quick access to helpful, relevant, and targeted information about substance abuse and mental health issues. To make this service a robust tool, we used our expertise in information technology, information center services, and targeted marketing.
To promote the opening of its new Metabolic Clinical Research Unit (MCRU), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) sought our expertise in demonstrating the value of this facility for researchers in the fields of metabolism, nutrition, cardiovascular biology, gastroenterology, hepatology, genetics, and behavioral sciences.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke holds a variety of conferences each year. In anticipation of these conferences, the Institute called upon IQ Solutions to design and create materials, such as signs and program books, to enhance the experience for participants and contribute to the meetings’ success.
NICHD tasked IQ Solutions with organizing a panel of experts to comprehensively analyze data on reading comprehension and to help in compiling a resulting summary of the findings. We planned and initiated the National Reading Panel to examine the current state of reading and its implications for reading instruction.
When SAMHSA’s Office of Applied Studies needed to upgrade its Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) to electronic real-time reporting, IQ Solutions sprang into action. The existing DAWN system was effective in monitoring trends in drug-related emergency department visits and deaths, reporting the use of new drug combinations, assessing health hazards associated with drug abuse, and estimating the impact of drug abuse on the U.S. health care system, but failed to incorporate the latest online technologies.
The SAMHSA Administrator and other high-level staff from the Office of the Administrator made plans to visit our warehouse in Odenton, Maryland, for an informative tour, where IQ Solutions would demonstrate process improvement and how our staff responds to requests for publications.
Halfway through the decade-long initiative Healthy People 2010, the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion asked IQ Solutions to bring together experts in public health to determine the progress being made toward achieving the initiative’s goals and objectives.
NIDDK commissioned IQ Solutions to capture meaningful footage of the Institute director during his attendance at the New York Children’s Museum. With only 24 hours to prepare, we worked with NIDDK’s communications staff to secure footage at the museum and edit it into an informative, entertaining, and Section 508-compliant video, which is currently airing on location at the Institute.
