With another 71 mem­bers hold­ing emer­i­tus sta­tus, IOM’s total mem­ber­ship is now 1,736. Estab­lished in 1970 by the National Acad­emy of Sci­ences, the Insti­tute of Med­i­cine is a national resource for inde­pen­dent, sci­en­tif­i­cally informed analy­sis and rec­om­men­da­tions on issues related to human health. With their elec­tion, mem­bers make a com­mit­ment to devote a sig­nif­i­cant amount of vol­un­teer time as mem­bers of IOM study com­mit­tees.“
