Have you seen these headlines?

Have you wondered what was behind the headlines?   Here’s your chance to find out!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) is the only survey of its kind and I would like to take this opportunity to send you the NHANES press release which will provide key information about the survey for your readers, some of whom may be selected to participate in the survey.

Do you ever wonder why gasoline or paint is unleaded? Or, how many people in the U.S. have diabetes? Although these questions seem unrelated, they both come from the same source- The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). The aim of this national survey is to provide important data on health conditions and concerns in the country. This year NHANES will be traveling to Suffolk County, NY starting April 24 (our site office will open) and interviewing will start April 29 through June 28, 2017.  I have enclosed the NHANES press release press release containing key information about NHANES. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact my colleagues, Jacque  DeMatteis, Sherwin Bates or myself.

Thank you for your time and assistance to help reach the community on this important national effort.
