Also any medical findings are made available to the participants and that could mean as much as $4,500 in free testing.”All participants receive an examination by a physician, as well as dietary interview and body measurements that include height and weight. Some will be eligible for a hearing test, a scan to evaluate body fat and a breathing test, as well as a blood pressure test. The various tests and procedures depend on the age of the participant.

The survey is a unique resource for health information. Without it, important knowledge about major health conditions would be lacking,” Martinello said.The information gathered by NHANES is used by public health officials, legislators and physicians to develop sound health policies, direct and design health programs and services and expand the health knowledge for the nation.

The survey got underway in Pike County on Thursday.“NHANES is a valuable tool for developing effective health policies and programs and it’s also an opportunity to gain information about one’s health,” said Nora Martinello, senior study manager Centers for Disease Control NHANES.“Each year, about 7,000 randomly-selected residents in 15 counties across the nation have the opportunity to participate in the latest National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey which is conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.” Skip By Jaine Treadwell Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content You Might Like Boothe: New bill may cause controversy The Alabama Legislature is setting sail upon the high seas of political controversy as lawmakers consider a tough Immigration Bill…. read more The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Latest Stories Pike Countains to be selected for Health Survey Print Articlelast_img
