Appendix F

List of Subcommittees for the Secretary's Advisory Committee

Dr. Fielding stated that the Subcommittees would be charged with providing directional advice and develop recommendations for the Committee's consideration. Prior to the next in-person meeting, Subcommittees will be asked to provide Committee members with short, written reports and orally present their recommendations to the Committee at the subsequent Committee meetings. The Subcommittee reports will help to inform the next meeting, and to set the next meeting's agenda.
