The Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ) has asked us to share this information with the SIDM Listserve:
The Agency is soliciting nominations for new members of its National Advisory Council<https://www.ahrq.gov/cpi/about/organization/nac/index.html#Overview>. The 21-member Council advises Director Khanna and HHS Secretary Thomas Price, M.D., on matters related to activities of the Agency to carry out its mission. Seven current members' terms will expire in November 2017, and new members will begin their terms in the spring of 2018.
Members generally serve three-year terms, and the Council meets in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area approximately three times a year. To fill these positions, we are seeking individuals with experience and success in (1) the conduct of research, demonstration projects, and evaluations with respect to health care; (2) the fields of health care quality research or health care improvement; (3) the practice of medicine; (4) other health professions; (5) representing the private health care sector (including health plans, providers, and purchasers) or administrators of health care delivery systems; (6) the fields of health care economics, information systems, law, ethics, business, or public policy; and, (7) representing the interests of patients and consumers of health care.
Interested persons may nominate one or more qualified persons for membership on the Council. Self-nominations are accepted.
