The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has opened for public comment an update to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation for the screening and management of  adults with obesity. The comment period is open until November 28, 2011. See U.S. Preventive Services Task Force: Draft Recommendation Statement


The USPSTF recommendations are particularly important as they are widely used by private insurers as well as included in several parts of the Affordable Care Act.
