Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 61888 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 211 / Thursday, November 1, 2007 / Notices during the fiscal year, identifying findings and developing recommendations to enhance Title VII Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Training Grant Programs. The Annual Report is submitted to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and ranking members of the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions of the Senate, and the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives. The Department of Health and Human Services is requesting a total of seven (7) nominations for voting members of the ACICBL from schools that have administered or are currently administering awards from the following programs: Area Health Education Centers (AHECs)—1 nominee, Allied Health—1 nominee, Geriatric Education and Training Programs—1 nominee, Health Education and Training Centers (HETCs)—1 nominee, and Quentin N. Burdick Program for Rural Interdisciplinary Training—1 nominee. Nominations are also requested for two student, resident, and/or fellow representatives. Interested individuals may nominate multiple qualified professionals for membership to the ACICBL to allow the Secretary to choose from a highly qualified list of potential candidates. Nominees willing to serve as members of the ACICBL should have no appearance of a conflict of interest that would preclude their participation. Potential candidates will be asked to provide detailed information concerning consultancies, research grants, or contracts to permit an evaluation of possible sources of conflicts of interest. In addition, a curriculum vitae and a statement of interest will be required of the nominee to support experience working with Title VII Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Training Grant Programs, expertise in the field, and personal desire in participating on a National Advisory Committee. Qualified candidates will be invited to serve a one-, two-, or three-year term. All nominations must be received no later than December 31, 2007. The legislation governing this Committee requires a fair balance of health professionals who represent the general population with regard to a broad geographic distribution and an evenness of urban and rural areas, along with professionals who are women and minorities. As such, the pool of appropriately qualified nominations should reflect these requirements to the degree possible. VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:40 Oct 31, 2007 Jkt 214001 Dated: October 25, 2007.
