YOUR Voice Needed: Recommend Preventive Services in the USA

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) invites anyone (including individuals and organizations) to nominate a topic for the USPSTF to consider for a future recommendation. A nomination may suggest a new preventive service topic that has not been reviewed by the USPSTF to date or recommend reconsideration of an existing topic. These nominations are accepted at any time and are considered by the USPSTF at one of its regularly scheduled meetings in March, July, or November. For more information or to nominate a topic, visit http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/tftopicnom.htm.

The USPSTF is a Congressionally mandated, independent panel of experts in primary care and prevention who are charged with making recommendations to primary care providers about clinical preventive services: screening tests, preventive medications, and counseling.
