Solicitation of Nominations for USPSTF Members
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality invites nominations of individuals qualified to serve as members of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). The USPSTF, a standing, independent panel of non-Federal experts that makes evidence-based recommendations to the health care community and the public regarding clinical preventive services, is composed of 16 members, who are appointed to serve staggered 4-year terms. New members are selected each year to replace approximately one fourth of the USPSTF members; that is, those who are completing their appointments.
For complete information, including member duties and qualification requirements, and directions for submitting nominations, please review the Federal Register notice at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2010/pdf/2010-21500.pdf.
