About J R Garrison & Associates
J R Garrison & Associates is a consultation firm dedicated to public health advocacy issues. John R. Garrison, the firm's founder, has been advocating for the public for over 25 years.

"John Garrison is a reasonable voice in the tobacco wars, a warrior and a leader when he has to be, as well as someone I have always considered to be an ally and a friend."
C. Everett Koop, M.D., Sc.D. Surgeon General, 1981-1989.
Hubert H.Humphrey III, former Attorney General, State of Minnesota, had this to say about John Garrison:
"Leadership calls for vision, courage, and a will to act. John Garrison has all of these. His outstanding service at the helm of the American Lung Association and his courageous fight to end addiction to tobacco places him far out front in the vanguard of public health leadership."
Dr. Stan Glantz, the Honorable Hubert H. Humphrey, III, and John R. Garrison at the ALA International Meeting, 1999.

"John Garrison is that rare combination of an internationally recognized authority in health and management who is a compelling speaker not only interesting but with an excellent sense of humor."
Lee B. Reichman, M.D.,M.P.H. Executive Director, New Jersey Medical School National Tuberculosis Center.

Mr. Garrison has been a national leader in the battle against the tobacco industry and in the fight for clean air. Mr. Garrison was the only voluntary health association executive to oppose giving the tobacco industry legal immunity during the industry’s 1997 tobacco settlement negotiations with the state attorneys general. This led former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop to describe him as “a man of integrity not easily swayed by public opinion.”
"John Garrison has consistently and courageously fought against Big Tobacco. He is one of the main reasons that Big Tobacco still does not have what it wants most---immunity from law suits."
Stanton A. Glantz, Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco.
