The Division of General Internal Medicine congratulates associate professor of medicine and clinical and translational science, Esa Davis, MD, MPH, on her appointment to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force). The Task Force is an independent, volunteer panel of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine that makes evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services, such as screenings, counseling services, and preventive medicines.
“On behalf of the full Task Force, I am happy to welcome Dr. Davis,” said Task Force chair Alex H. Krist, MD, MPH. “Dr. Davis’s expertise providing care for people of all ages, with a specific focus on women’s health, as well as her commitment to addressing health disparities, will bring important perspectives to the Task Force.”
Dr. Davis will join fellow experts in evidence-based medicine from primary care and prevention-related fields—including internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, behavioral health, obstetrics/gynecology, and nursing—to rigorously review evidence and evaluate the benefits and harms of preventive services.
The Task Force works to improve the health of people nationwide by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services, such as screenings, counseling services, and preventive medications. Task Force recommendations have informed clinical standards for many professional societies, health organizations, and medical quality review groups.
