Reminder: Public Commenting on Healthy People 2020 Objectives Closes Tomorrow (Dec 31, 2009)
Healthy People is a program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that sets health objectives for the nation for a ten-year period. The current set of objectives is referred to as Healthy People 2010, but as 2010 is fast approaching, the department is considering a new set of health priorities to target through 2020.
Public comments on the proposed objectives are being accepted through tomorrow, December 31, 2009; go here to comment online (anonymously or with a registered profile). See the OBOS blog post for some areas for potential priorities that I thought would be of interest.
