The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced the appointment of 17 nationally recognized experts in physical activity and health to serve on the 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee.
Over the next two years, the Committee will examine current scientific evidence on the relationship between physical activity and health outcomes and will ultimately submit evidence-based recommendations in a scientific advisory report to the Secretary of HHS. These recommendations will be considered, along with public and federal agency comments, as HHS develops the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
The Advisory Committee’s first meeting will take place on July 14, 8:30 – 11:30 AM and July 15, 8:00 AM – 3:15 PM. The meeting is open to the public in person at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Campus in Bethesda or via webcast.
