Force (USPSTF), inviting us to participate in an
upcoming briefing on the USPSTF Draft Recommendation

draft recommendation statement may be viewed at:
I encourage you and your organization to review the
draft recommendation statement and provide comments.

Also, you probably have noticed that the USPSTF website
is down and not able to accept comments at this time. We
would like to think that so many of us have tried to

Keep up the good work! Our voices are being heard, and
we are making a difference!
