The CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) is coming to Maricopa County! NHANES is a unique program conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) that collects data on the health of persons living in the U.S. through interviews and physical measurements. NHANES staff travel across the country in mobile examination centers to reach the people selected to participate in the survey. Maricopa County is one of several counties selected to participate this year. The NHANES Mobile Exam Center will be in town starting March 17 through May 15, 2018.
Participation in the survey is by invitation only – but if you are invited, we encourage you to participate! For more information visit: www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhanes.htm.
