Searcy Becomes First Arkansas City to Participate in National Health Survey Conducted Since 1960 | News

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey that some White County residents are participating in “is a way for government to understand the health of the nation and what needs to be improved,” according to study leader Ruthie Christian.

NHANES has traveled the country to learn about the health of the U.S. population since 1960, though it is operating in an Arkansas city for the first time, Christian said. Medical exam trailers arrived at Harding University before Thanksgiving and the boots hit the ground again in White County last Thursday, he said.
