Online Public Comment on the Healthy People 2020 Government Guidelines
Healthy People (funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services) provides science-based, 10-year national objectives for promoting health and preventing disease. Healthy People 2020 will reflect assessments of major risks to health and wellness, changing public health priorities, and emerging issues related to our nation's health preparedness and prevention. Public participation is shaping Healthy People 2020, its purpose, goals, organization, and action plans. HHS is seeking input from communities and stakeholders through public meetings across the country and public comment periods. Send your online feedback on the proposed objectives for Healthy People 2020. Comments will be accepted through December 31, 2009.

Give your input on topics ranging from Access to Health Services, Environmental Health, Global Health, Food Safety, and more. I think the Metafilter community might be able to contribute great insights on the Health Communication and Health IT topic. My company is currently engaged in some work related to the objective 11-2 ("improve the health literacy of the population")! Please participate in the public comments through December 31, 2009.
