Its members come from preventive medicine and primary care, including internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, behavioral health, obstetrics and gynecology, and nursing. The panel is independent, but convened and supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
