Volunteering to serve on the Committee is a great opportunity to work with other experts and use your scientific knowledge to improve public health. The Departments are seeking scientists with expertise in nutrition and health that reflect the diversity of the United States population. Candidates should have an advanced degree in a nutrition- or health-related field, with at least 10 years of experience in academia, research, or as a practitioner or other health professional in a field related to 1 or more of the scientific topics to be examined.
The Committee’s evidence review will focus on diet and health outcomes across the lifespan, including the relationship between diet and risk of overweight and obesity with a new emphasis on weight loss and weight maintenance for adults. The Committee will use a health equity lens across its evidence review. Additional information about the Dietary Guidelines and establishing the 2025 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee is available on DietaryGuidelines.gov.
