Nominations open for the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee
In coordination with the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) has announced the public call for nominations to the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC). The independent advisory committee will review the scientific evidence to help inform the 2020–2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The deadline to submit nominations for the DGAC is Oct. 6, 2018.
“We are looking forward to a robust group of nominees to serve on the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee,” said Brandon Lipps, acting deputy under secretary for the Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services at the USDA, and the administrative lead for the 2020–2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
“The public’s participation throughout the development of the guidelines is crucial as we work hard to ensure the process is transparent and science-driven.”
