To co-support the establishment of a Standing Committee on Evidence Synthesis and Communications in Diet and Chronic Disease Relationships. The committee will advise sponsors on issues related to the quality and rigor of methodological approaches to evidence synthesis on diet-disease relationships and risk of chronic disease.

Approach:
A standing committee of approximately 8–10 members will be formed to monitor the current literature and identify emerging issues related to advancing the strength and rigor of scientific evidence in nutrition research on chronic disease risk; including effective communication of scientific evidence to the public. The committee will engage in discussions with sponsors about the state of the science on topics focusing on diet and chronic disease relationships.
