30 Wilmington Households To Be Randomly Selected To Participate In National Health & Nutrition Examination Survey

Below is an announcement from the Town of Wilmington:

Dear Residents,

This week, Health Director, Shelly Newhouse and Board of Health member, Dr. Jane Williams MD, MPH, met with the Select Board to announce NHANES will be coming to Wilmington this summer.

What is NHANES?

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) is the most in-depth survey designed to evaluate the health and nutritional status of adults and children in the United States.  This survey combines information from interviews and physical exams.  NHANES is run by the National Center for Disease Control (NCHS), part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Tentatively, we are planning to conduct the surveys in Wilmington from June 5, 2023 through August 21, 2023. A sample of about 30 randomly selected households will be invited to participate and will receive a letter asking them to complete a short online questionnaire about the members of their household. About 4-6 weeks later, our field interviewers will contact eligible household members to complete a health interview. Examinations at our examination center will be scheduled after completion of the home interview.
