RFI: Soliciting Input for the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health’s New Strategic Plan

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) is developing a new strategic plan to guide the Center’s research efforts and priority setting. Seeking input into the strategic planning process through a Request for Information (RFI) is critical for identification and consideration of research areas and topics to be included in the new plan.

Through this RFI, NCCIH invites input from researchers, health care providers, patient advocates and health advocacy organizations, scientific or professional organizations, Federal agencies, and other interested parties. Organizations are strongly encouraged to submit a single response that reflects the views of their organization and membership as a whole.
