How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The committee provides valuable counsel and perspective to the Director of CDC on crucial issues that affected CDC's mission to promote quality of life and health by preventing and controlling disease. The members of the Advisory Committee to the Director offered collective and individual insights from their various backgrounds in academia, business, communications, health care, and other fields.
How is membership balanced?*The committee membership is balanced by appointing members who are knowledgeable in areas pertinent to the CDC mission, such as public health and medical education, industry, health care delivery, health policy, preventive medicine, allied fields, communication, and a representative from the general public. In addition, the members are also ethnically and racially diverse. This type of expertise has provided CDC's leadership with providing diverse, informed opinions on broad policy issues affecting the agency and the health of the public. We maintain and post biographies for the members and other information on CDC's web site at: https://www.cdc.gov/about/advisory/leadersadv.htm
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Advisory Committee to the Director conducts two face-to-face meetings on an annual basis. The Health Disparities subcommittee conducts two face-to-face meetings and one virtual meeting each year. The State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Subcommittee conducts one face-to-face meeting and one virtual meetings each year. The meetings are tailored around specific agendas that focus on current concerns and issues to ensure their relevancy.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The committee provides expert input from outside constituents. It provides sound advice and broad-based perspectives from the committee members as well as from their peers to address current challenges to the nation’s health and globalization issues that directly correlate to CDC’s goal of providing professional and technical advice to the health community and sound health messages to the public. With the increased emphasis over the past decade on prevention and health promotion, in both the public and private sectors, the need for external advice from the Advisory Committee to the Director has become even more important.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A
Recommendation RemarksNo new recommendations where developed in FY2018 and no parent ACD committee meetings where held. Due to the leadership transition at CDC, the ACD nomination package was delayed resulting in too few members to hold a meeting. A new nomination package for the current Director is under development.
