The Interagency Committee on Human Nutrition Research (ICHNR) released the first National Nutrition Research Roadmap , which is designed to guide federal nutrition research and encourages an increased focus on research that can lead to more individualized advice for promoting health and preventing disease. The Roadmap integrates public comments and reflects more than a year of interagency collaboration among HHS, USDA, Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, the Federal Trade Commission, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the United States Agency for International Development, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Veterans Health Administration and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The Roadmap addresses research gaps concerning nutrition-related chronic diseases and health disparities, particularly for at–risk groups such as pregnant women, children and older adults, and specifically examines the role of nutrition for optimal performance and military readiness.
