RISK: Health, Safety & Environment (1990-2002)


A discussion of the results of two surveys of present and past members of Food and Drug Administration Advisory Committees. The views and understanding of the issues before various categories of membership are compared and contrasted. It appears that technical members of advisory committees would generally welcome more participation by persons who lack special subject matter expertise.
