SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under the authorities that established the ACICBL, the Federal Advisory Committee Act of October 6, 1972 (Pub. L. 92-463), and section 2119 of the Act, 42 U.S.C. 00aa-19, as added by Public Law 99-660 and amended, HRSA is requesting nominations for 11 voting members.

The ACICBL provides advice and recommendations to the Secretary and to the Congress concerning policy, program development and other matters of significance related to interdisciplinary, community-based training grant programs authorized under sections 751-756, Title VII, Part D of the Public Health Service Act. The ACICBL prepares an annual report describing the activities conducted during the fiscal year, identifying findings and developing recommendations to enhance Title VII Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Training Grant Programs. The Annual Report is submitted to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and ranking members of the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions of the Senate, and the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives.

The Department of Health and Human Services is requesting a total of 11 nominations for voting members of the ACICBL from schools that have adminstered or are currently administering awards from the following programs: Area Health Education Centers (AHECs)—2 nominees, Health Education and Training Centers (HETCs)—2 nominees, Allied Health disciplines—1 nominee, Quentin N. Burdick Program for Rural Interdisciplinary Training—2 nominees, Podiatric Medicine—1 nominee, and Graduate Psychology—1 nominee. Nominations are also requested for one student, resident, and/or fellow, and one non-acadmic community-based partner, both of whom are affiliated with a training grant program represented on the Committee.

Interested individuals may nominate multiple qualified professionals for membership to the ACICBL to allow the Secretary to choose from a highly qualified list of potential candidates. Nominees willing to serve as members of the ACICBL should have no appearance of a conflict of interest that would preclude their participation. Potential candidates will be asked to provide detailed information concerning consultancies, research grants, or contracts to permit an evaluation of possible sources of conflicts of interest. In addition, a curriculum vitae and a statement of interest will be required of the nominee to support experience working with Title VII Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Training Grant Programs, expertise in the field, and personal desire in participating on a National Advisory Committee. Qualified candidates will be invited to serve a three-year term beginning on October 1, 2007 through September 30, 2010. All nominations must be received no later than June 30, 2007.

The legislation governing this Committee requires a fair balance of health professionals who represent the general population with regard to a broad geographic distribution and an evenness of urban and rural areas, along with professionals who are women and minorities. As such, the pool of appropriately qualified nominations should reflect these requirements to the degree possible.
