Announcement: New Recommendations from the Community Preventive Services Task Force Available Online
The Community Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force) recently posted new information on its website regarding "Preventing Excessive Alcohol Consumption: Electronic Screening and Brief Intervention (e-SBI)." The information is available at http://www.thecommunityguide.org/alcohol/esbi.html.
Established in 1996 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Task Force is an independent, nonfederal, unpaid panel of public health and prevention experts whose members are appointed by the Director of CDC. The Task Force provides information for a wide range of decision makers on programs, services, and policies aimed at improving population health. Although CDC provides administrative, research, and technical support for the Task Force, the recommendations developed are those of the Task Force and do not undergo review or approval by CDC.
