The Secretary of Health and Human Services charters a variety of Advisory Panels and Committees to provide advice and guidance to the Secretary of Health and Human Service, agency administrators, and/or agency directors (CMS, CDC, NIH) on a variety of topics, including outreach and education, payment and coverage policies, health research and prevention programs, and more.
APTA Engage is being utilized to identify individuals who are interested in being nominated by APTA to serve on Committees or Advisory Panels that advise HHS. Potential candidates, if selected, must be willing and able to represent the physical therapy profession in its entirety.
This is not an APTA-appointed position. When APTA nominates a candidate, the nomination is sent directly to the federal agency. The federal agency is responsible for selecting appointees and any future communications on appointment status will come directly from the agency.
These opportunities may require travel to Washington, DC or Baltimore, MD and follow-up calls and webinars. Specific dates are not available at this time.
