The US Preventive Services Task Force was created in 1984 to make evidence-based recommendations about clinical services, like screening, that comprise essential elements of preventive care. It is comprised of expert volunteers in fields of primary care and preventive medicine, including pediatrics, family medicine, and internal medicine, as well as obstetrics and gynecology, nursing, and behavioral health.

It's also the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.
