About the Advisory Council
The Advisory Council, also known as PACCARB, provides advice, information, and recommendations to the HHS Secretary regarding programs and policies conducted by the U.S. government related to combating antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
The membership consists of 15 voting members, including the Chair and Vice Chair, and 15 non-voting members: five liaison representative members and ten federal ex-officio members.
This announcement is to solicit nominations to fill positions that are scheduled to be vacated during the 2017 calendar year in the non-voting liaison representative member category for a two-year term. Every effort will be made to ensure that the Advisory Council is a diverse group of individuals with representation from various geographic locations, racial and ethnic minorities, all genders, and persons living with disabilities.
