Over the past 25 years, IQ Solutions has supported a majority of the Institutes and Centers within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), with a strong track record in producing quality public health communication, education, research, and related digital tools to improve public health.

In the early 1990s, IQ Solutions began providing exceptional support for the work of the HHS Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). We are honored to continue working with these and other Institutes so many years later. We share a mission with our clients at HHS and NIH to improve lives through research and prevention and to communicate that evidence-based information effectively.

IQ Solutions won multiple contracts in July, August, and September of 2019, as listed below.

National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)

NIAAA recently awarded IQ Solutions a 3-year contract, a continuation of the previous 3-year contract. We are tasked to continue to support NIAAA with our Drupal 8 expertise, notable among which is the development of the highly publicized NIAAA Treatment Navigator, which earned the FedHealthIT Innovation Award for 2019. We are eager to continue work on the NIAAA websites and to use our digital expertise to ensure the sites continue to maximize content and engagement.

National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Research Translation and Dissemination for Adolescents

We are honored to continue supporting the NIDA for Teens website. By developing educational content and providing web support, IQ Solutions helps the Institute inform teens, parents, and teachers about the effects of drugs on the brain, body, and behavior. We work closely with NIDA to make the website an engaging and content-rich resource.

National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Media Support Services

NIDA has awarded IQ Solutions a 3-year contract to provide earned and social media support services as well as resources that facilitate the effective dissemination of the Institute’s scientific research findings. We are enthusiastic about the opportunity to increase the number of accurate news stories regarding NIDA-supported scientific findings and messages in news media outlets throughout the country.

National Cancer Institute (NCI) Conference Management and Exhibit Program

IQ Solutions is thrilled about the opportunity to support NCI’s National Conference Management and Exhibit Program and the Exhibit Loaner Program, and to further strengthen our relationship with the Institute, which began 24 years ago! Our organizations share a commitment to reduce the incidence of cancer in the United States and around the world. We will be using our communications expertise to further NCI’s mission and to offer opportunity for conference attendees to interact with Institute staff, learn more about NCI programs, enhance professional development, and obtain up-to-date program and educational materials, reaching as many as 40,000 professionals yearly.

HHS Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

SAMHSA has awarded IQ Solutions with a 5-year contract and the opportunity to continue supporting the Disaster Technical Assistance Center (DTAC) with communication, training and consultation, and expertise in the effects of disasters on the mental health and substance use of survivors and communities. During the previous 5 years of our work with DTAC, we gathered an outstanding, experienced project team who dedicated themselves to revitalizing SAMHSA DTAC into a major force in the field of disaster preparedness and response. We also developed SAMHSA’s first training courses for police, fire, and emergency medical services staff to help combat the effects of long-term stress and keep these important public servants healthy.

IQ Solutions’ CEO, Ileana Quintas states that, “We are especially grateful to have secured wins for each of the projects we recompeted in 2019. Winning these contracts again speaks to our dedication to working in tandem with our clients to provide the highest quality solutions in communication, research, and digital support.”
