This meeting was part of an Institute of Medicine/ National Research Council project. The project’s statement of task and committee roster were provided with the meeting materials. Through this session the committee gathered information to help conduct its study. This session was one among many means for the committee to assemble relevant resources, materials, and input to examine and discuss in the course of its deliberations. At this time, the committee has made no conclusions or recommendations.
