Sullivan County residents may received a health survey from the NYU School of Medicine to complete. This is phase two of a multi-year project, and many recipients may recall getting a survey in 2021. Sullivan County Public Health Services and the NYU School of Medicine partnered last year to perform a health survey sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to better understand the health and dietary patterns of residents in Sullivan County and the prevalence of diabetes. The project is titled “The Impact of the Food Environment and Other Environmental Exposures on the Risk of Diabetes in Rural Settings.”
Surveys were recently mailed to approximately 4,000 individuals who participated in phase one of the study and returned their surveys. The phase two survey takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
Questions regarding the surveys or the project can be directed to Sullivan County Public Health.
