Five Academy Members Will Serve on 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee

Among 15 nutrition and health science authorities named May 31 by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services to the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, five are Academy members.

Following an evidence-based systematic review of current scientific literature, listening to and receiving public comment and deliberating in open forums, the committee will prepare an advisory report that will be used in creating the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which were last revised in 2010.

  • Chair: Barbara Millen, DrPH, RD, professor in the department of family medicine, Boston University School of Medicine
