Inviting Comments and Suggestions on a Framework for the NIH-wide Strategic Plan

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is requesting input from stakeholders from the extramural community and the general public regarding the framework for a five-year, NIH-wide strategic plan. Since physical activity research has been added to the NIH common fund, feedback from ACSM members will be valuable to shape future research programs related to physical activity, active lifestyles and Exercise is Medicine®. Comments can be submitted electronically at the NIH-wide strategic plan RFI submission website.

The goal of this strategic plan is to outline a vision for biomedical research that ultimately extends healthy life and reduces illness and disability. NIH senior leadership and staff have developed a proposed framework for the strategic plan that pursues cross-cutting areas of research that span the NIH's 27 institutes, centers and offices.

The framework includes an introduction, unifying principles to guide the NIH in pursuit of its mission and the following areas of opportunity:
  • Fundamental Science
  • Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
  • Treatment and Cures
The NIH will be hosting webinars in early to mid-August to gather additional input. Please direct all inquiries to: nihstrategicplan@od.nih.gov. The deadline for comments is August 16 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

The NIH-wide strategic plan is being developed in response to a request from the U.S. Congress and will be completed in late December 2015. more
