The mission of the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is to improve the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services. Critical to this mission is clear communication and dissemination of these recommendations.1 While the principal audience for USPSTF recommendations remains primary care clinicians, other clinicians, public health officials, funders, and the general public are now also interested.
