The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) welcomes nominations for new members to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force). Each year, the Director of AHRQ appoints new members to serve 4-year terms and replace those who are completing their service. To learn more about the nomination process, how to nominate an individual for consideration, or how to self-nominate, please visit www.ahrq.gov/clinic/tfnominfo.htm. Nominations must be received by Thursday, May 15, 2014 to be considered for appointment with an anticipated start date of January 2015.

Qualified candidates must demonstrate expertise and national leadership in clinical prevention, the critical evaluation of research, and the implementation of evidence-based recommendations in clinical practice. In addition, AHRQ seeks candidates who have experience in public health, the reduction of health disparities, the application of science to health policy, and the communication of findings to health care professionals, policy makers, and the general public.

To maintain balance in the expertise among members, this year, AHRQ is actively seeking the nomination of individuals from the field of family medicine. Individuals nominated prior to May 15, 2013 who continue to have interest in serving on the Task Force should be re-nominated.

The Task Force works to improve the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services such as screenings, counseling services, and preventive medications. More information on the Task Force is available at www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org.

AHRQ provides ongoing scientific, administrative, and dissemination support to the Task Force. To learn more about how AHRQ supports the Task Force, please visit http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/bulletins/ahrqsupportfact.pdf.
