USDA Open Ideas: ARS
The USDA Agricultural Research Service is soliciting customer and stakeholder input on planning and setting research priorities for its veterinary, medical and urban entomology research program.

This information will help guide us in developing our research plans for the next five years.
These programs form the foundation of all nutritional epidemiology in the U.S. and provide snapshots of the nutritional health of the nation and its food supply. We will expand and improve the National Nutrient Databank which provides food composition data. We will determine food consumption and dietary patterns of Americans as part of the What We Eat in America survey, the diet component the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), done in partnership with CDC.
