The more people who participate, the more accurately we can estimate how many New Yorkers have certain health problems, such as diabetes, high cholesterol and exposure to second-hand smoke. These findings give public health professionals and elected officials the information they need to:
Since the first NYC HANES was conducted in 2004, researchers have published some 20 scientific articles that have led to action that has improved the health of New Yorkers. Some of these articles also have contributed to the national conversation about public health issues.
Your participation requires only 2 to 3 hours, but it will continue to improve city life for years afterward.
