Population Assesment of Tobacco and Health Logo

The Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study is a national longitudinal study of tobacco use and how it affects the health of people in the United States. People from all over the country take part in this study.

Project Details

The PATH study started in 2013; it's the first large research effort undertaken since Congress gave the FDA authority to regulate tobacco products in 2009.

The PATH study, conducted by Westat, required small 5-day meetings, as well as two 20-day national trainings for up to 1,000 participants. The attendees included renowned scientists and social science researchers, as well as high level federal government personnel.

How We Supported The Vision

From 2016 to 2018, Occasions, Inc. provided audiovisual support, site selection and negotiation, onsite support, ground transportation, travel arrangements, preparation of trainer materials, budget management, vendor and supplier deposits, reconciliation and payment of final invoices, meeting room coordination, and high-level speaker support.

Year after year, OI provided reliable and consistent support that exceeded expectations and proved effective. Westat and other involved organizations gained valuable feedback and results from their assessments, and continued to use OI as their go-to event management resource.
