February 28 - 29, 2008 Advisory Committee Meeting Minutes
Welcome and Introduction of Acting Assistant Secretary of Health
RADM Penelope Slade Royall, Deputy Assistant Secretary for
Health, welcomed the Committee and members of the audience. RADM Royall remarked
after Secretary Leavitt announced the creation of the Physical Activity
Guidelines, the process has moved along rapidly to get to this point. She
thanked the committee for moving quickly and acknowledged the support the
committee received from the Federal Steering Committee, the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and
Evaluation, all of the consultants and everyone involved with the Physical
Activity Guidelines process. RADM Royall noted the importance of this process as
it will be the first time the federal government has come together, speaking
with one voice, to produce guidelines on physical activity. RADM Royall
introduced Don Wright, Acting Assistant Secretary for Health.
