Office of Public Health and Science; Notice of Partnership 

    Pursuant to Title XVII of the Public Health Service Act, notice is 
hereby given that the Office of Disease Prevention and Health 
Promotion, Office of Public Health and Science, is seeking partnerships 
with non-Federal organizations to promote, distribute and encourage the 
implementation of ``Put Prevention into Practice.'' ``Put Prevention 
into Practice'' is a system-based approach to implementing the 
recommendations of the United States Preventive Services Task Force, 
targeting patients, clinicians, and medical offices. The goal is to 
increase the impact of ``Put Prevention into Practice'' by forming 
partnerships with private sector organizations. These cooperative 
efforts are intended to bring the resources of several partners to bear 
on the implementation of clinical preventive services guidelines and on 
the efforts to increase the delivery of appropriate clinical preventive 
services, efforts that are too complex for any one organization to 
handle alone. Organizations with particular experience, expertise or 
interest in the development, marketing and distribution of prevention-
related materials to the general public, professional organizations and 
managed care organizations will be well-aligned with current and 
planned initiatives of ``Put Prevention into Practice'' activities.

    Note: Partnerships between ODPHP and outside organizations will 
be formalized through Memorandum of Agreements and will not involve 
grants or contracts.

    Date of Effectiveness: February 19, 1997.
    For more information, please contact Rika Maeshiro, M.D., M.P.H., 
Senior Clinical Affairs Advisor, Office of Disease Prevention and 
Health Promotion, Office of Public Health and Science, at 202-690-7943.
