The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) jointly with the U.S. Department of Agriculture have posted a notice in the Federal Register seeking nominations for representatives to serve on the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC).

Nominations may be submitted by email to DG2015Nominations@hhs.gov and must be received no later than close of business November 26, 2012. The DGAC will be established in early 2013 with up to 17 members and is expected to meet at least four times. The Committee will develop a report of its recommendations that will be presented to the Secretaries of HHS and USDA.  The Guidelines form the basis for federal food, nutrition education, and information policies and programs.
