Experts needed! The Academy will be seeking input from Academy members and DPGs over the next two years as we make recommendations on the upcoming Dietary Guidelines 2020-2025.
Additionally, the Academy will select nominees to serve on the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC).
“Prospective members of the DGAC should be knowledgeable of current scientific research in human nutrition and chronic disease and be respected and published experts in their fields. The prospective members also should be familiar with the purpose, communication, and application of the Guidelines and have demonstrated interest in the public’s health and well-being through research and/or educational endeavors. Expertise will be sought in specific specialty areas that may include, but are not limited to, cardiovascular disease; type 2 diabetes, overweight and obesity; osteoporosis; cancer; pediatrics; gerontology; maternal/gestational nutrition; epidemiology; general medicine; energy balance, which includes physical activity; nutrient bioavailability; nutrition biochemistry and physiology; food processing science, safety and technology; public health; nutrition education and behavior change; and/or nutrition-related systematic review methodology.”
If you would like to nominate any qualified experts, including yourself, who meet the criteria for DGAC nominations, please submit their name(s), credentials and contact information to Nate Stritzinger. Contact Pepin Tuma to learn more.
