HGTC Hosts Nationwide Health Survey
National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Underway at HGTC.
Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) is proud to announce that the College is serving as the Horry County host site for the National Health & Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the most comprehensive survey of health and nutritional status of the US population. The survey is conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Horry County is one of 15 counties in the United States selected to participate in this initiative.
“We are very excited about NHANES conducting the survey on our Conway Campus and being able to accommodate the medical exam unit for their health professionals to perform examinations,” said Dr. Marilyn M. Fore, HGTC President. “Data collected from the survey will impact our everyday lives. We hope Horry County residents will participate in the free and comprehensive health and nutrition evaluation to help in the development of national health programs and policies.”
HGTC and NHANES will host a Media Day on Wednesday, February 12 at the Medical Exam Unit located on the HGTC Conway Campus. The event will start at 9 a.m. and will consist of Interviews & Tours.
