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 June 10, 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 held five public meetings to discuss its scientific review and will hold another meeting to discuss its draft advisory report. All Committee meetings are open to the public and two meetings included opportunities for the public to provide oral comments to the Committee.
