The third committee meeting, held on September 29-30, 2005, in Washington, D.C. (Box A-4), was the second main data-gathering session open to the public. During this meeting, the committee heard presentations from three speakers who provided overviews of cultural influences on health, the effects of psychological stress on health, and gene-environment interactions. The remaining two committee meetings were closed to the public in order to permit committee deliberation and report writing. They were held in November of 2005 and January of 2006.
