WeeklyJuly 18, 2014 / 63(28);608
The Community Preventive Services Task Force posted new information about two recommendations on its website: 1) Promoting Health Equity Through Education Programs and Policies: High School Completion Programs, available athttp://www.thecommunityguide.org/healthequity/education/highschoolcompletion.html, and 2) Promoting Health Equity Through Education Programs and Policies: Out-of-School-Time Academic Programs, available at http://www.thecommunityguide.org/healthequity/education/outofschooltime.html.
Established in 1996 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the task force is an independent, nonfederal, uncompensated panel of public health and prevention experts whose members are appointed by the Director of CDC. The task force provides information for a wide range of decision makers on programs, services, and policies aimed at improving population health. Although CDC provides administrative, research, and technical support for the task force, the recommendations developed are those of the task force and do not undergo review or approval by CDC.
