    Background on the CPSTF: The CPSTF is an independent, nonfederal 
panel whose members are appointed by the CDC Director. CPSTF members 
represent a broad range of research, practice, and policy expertise in 
prevention, wellness, health promotion, and public health. The CPSTF 
was convened in 1996 by the Department of Health and Human Services 
(HHS) to identify community preventive programs, services, and policies 
that increase healthy longevity, save lives and dollars, and improve 
Americans' quality of life. CDC is mandated to provide ongoing 
administrative, research, and technical support for the operations of 
the CPSTF. During its meetings, the CPSTF considers the findings of 
systematic reviews on existing research and practice-based evidence and 
issues recommendations. CPSTF recommendations are not mandates for 
compliance or spending. Instead, they provide information about 
evidence-based options that decision makers and stakeholders can 
consider when they are determining what best meet the specific needs, 
preferences, available resources, and constraints of their 
jurisdictions and constituents. The CPSTF's recommendations, along with 
the systematic reviews of the evidence on which they are based, are 
compiled in the Guide to Community Preventive Services (The Community 
Guide).
    Matters proposed for discussion: Cancer Prevention and Control 
(Economics of Multicomponent Interventions to Improve Cancer Screening 
for Breast, Colorectal, and Cervical Cancer); Health Equity (proposal 
for housing interventions as a new topic area); Obesity Prevention and 
Control (Combined School-Based Interventions to Increase Healthier Food 
and Beverage Consumption and Physical Activity); Women's Health 
(Primary Prevention of Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence 
Among Youth); and discussion of Community Guide economic methods. The 
agenda is subject to change without notice.
