To ensure the impartiality of the independent panel for each Pathways to Prevention (P2P) workshop, the panel is a multidisciplinary body of non-federal representatives that includes an individual representing public-centered values and concerns and representatives from many of the following disciplines: biostatistics, epidemiology, practicing and academic health, clinical trial research, and other fields relevant to the topic. Furthermore, the panel members must have no vested financial or intellectual interest in the topic under review. Any concerns about these restrictions and workshop activities should be conveyed to the Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) P2P Coordinator in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) ODP. All travel-related costs are covered by the NIH, which also provides clerical and logistical support. To maintain the independence of the panel, honoraria are not provided.
