On Friday, September 9, 2022, the National Advisory Council for Complementary and Integrative Health (NACCIH) will hold an online-only meeting, its first for Fiscal Year 2023. If you are a National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) grantee, potential grant applicant, member of the public, or other stakeholder, we invite you to the meeting’s Open Session (view the agenda).

The NACCIH is charged with advising, consulting with, and making recommendations to the Center director on matters relating to NCCIH’s research activities and functions. In closed sessions, it provides secondary review of grant applications, taking NCCIH research priorities and program balance into consideration.

The Open Session will be livestreamed from 11:40 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET on NIH VideoCast, where it will later be archived. Registration is not necessary. 

We look forward to hearing the following presentations in the Open Session, to then be discussed by the Council: 

  • NCCIH Director Dr. Helene M. Langevin will report on NCCIH’s news, plans, and activities since the May 2022 NACCIH meeting.
  • Dr. Michael Lauer, deputy director for Extramural Research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Dr. Craig Hopp, deputy director of the NCCIH Division of Extramural Research, will present on NIH policies on data management and sharing. Applications with receipt dates on or after January 25, 2023, will need to comply with a new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy.
  • Dr. Langevin will speak on “Determinants of Whole Person Health.” NCCIH has been compiling a list of major determinants of health that encompass the full continuum of biological, behavioral, social, and environmental domains. These could ultimately be used to identify a set of common data elements to be used in either research or patient care. Discussion of responses to NCCIH’s Request for Information on “Identification of a Set of Determinants for Whole Person Health” will be included in this presentation.

Comments for the Public Comment part of this virtual Open Session will be accepted in writing only, based on NIH policy. Public comments (up to 750 words) will be accepted for 15 days after the meeting, emailed to by Saturday, September 24. They will be added to the meeting minutes and posted on the NACCIH portal within 90 days of the meeting. 

We hope you can join us for all or part of the Open Session.
