Joel Spitzer has been conducting smoking prevention programs since 1972 when, as a volunteer, he developed and presented his very first smoking education seminar for the American Cancer Society's Chicago Unit in the Illinois Division.

He conducted smoking cessation clinics and school based smoking prevention programs for the Good Health Program of Rush North Shore Medical Center in Skokie, Illinois from 1978 to 2000. Aside from serving as director of education online at WhyQuit, today Joel also presents regular clinics and seminars for Evanston and Skokie Health Departments.

In addition to presenting more than 570 educational seminars to over 92,000 children and adults on smoking prevention, Joel has presented over 350 full nicotine cessation clinics with over 4,500 participants. Below is a list of clinics presented at various sites throughout the metropolitan Chicago area.
