Solicitation of Nominations for USPSTF Members

August 31, 2010 – 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.
