Position Statements

ACPM's Prevention Practice Committee coordinates the development of position statements. ACPM position statements usually are published in ACPM's journal, the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, other medical journals, and/or on ACPM's website.

The purpose of the position statements is to outline the College’s perspective on critical preventive medicine issues—which often have been reviewed and analyzed by entities outside of ACPM but may be controversial or lack clear guidance for health practitioners—to exert a positive influence on policy, practice, and research dealing with the subject of the statement.
