Understanding the High Prevalence of Low-Prevalence Chronic Disease Combinations: Databases and Methods for Research. Appendix D – Technical Advisory Group Members


The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) included experts from several federal HHS agencies who consulted about the content and design of the study. TAG members participated in an initial in-person meeting in December 2012 and provided feedback on the original literature review to determine additional databases, grouping systems, and methods for studying MCC in disparities populations. TAG members then participated in a second meeting by teleconference in May 2013 to review and provide feedback on the first draft of the White Paper.
