The Health Services Professional Advisory Committee (HSPAC) is seeking members for a 3-year term beginning 1 January 2011. HSPAC provides advice to the Surgeon General (SG) and the Health Services Chief Professional Officer (CPO) on professional and personnel issues related to the Health Services category. Selections are based on the nominee’s commitment to public health activities and specified criteria in the HSPAC Charter (e.g., organizational, discipline, gender, minority representation), and are made by the HSPAC and approved by the SG.

HSPAC members are expected to obtain the necessary Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Operating Division/Staff Division/non-HHS organization to which assigned support to attend six scheduled meetings per year.
