The National Advisory Council (NAC) on the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is a group of healthcare providers and administrators.
These members are experts in the issues that communities with a shortage of primary care professionals face in meeting their healthcare needs.
The NAC is a frontline source of information to the NHSC senior management.
The National Advisory Council commits to effectively advising the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and, by designation, the Administrator of the Health Resources and Services Administration.
What are NAC’s responsibilities?
- Serve as a forum to identify the priorities for the NHSC and bring forward and anticipate future program issues and concerns.
- Do this through ongoing communication with program staff, professional organizations, communities and program participants.
- Function as a sounding board for proposed policy changes by using the varying levels of expertise represented on the Council to advise on specific program areas.
- Develop and distribute white papers and briefs that clearly state issues and/or concerns relating to the NHSC with specific recommendations for necessary policy revisions.
