There are multiple opportunities for public participation before, during, and after the Committee’s review of the evidence. Ways to participate include reviewing regularly updated information on our website, attending or viewing public meetings, and providing public comments, including opportunities for written and oral comments.
Submitting Public Comments
A public comment period opened on March 12, 2019 and will remain open until the Committee submits its scientific report to the Secretaries of USDA and HHS in 2020. The public is encouraged to submit written comments to the Committee on topics relevant to its work. This comment period will allow for public comments on every topic and question the committee covers.
Attend a Public Meeting
The 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will meet approximately five times. All Committee meetings will be open to the public and two of these meetings will include opportunities for the public to provide oral comments to the Committee.
