DUTIES:

The Director provides overall scientific direction and management to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), a comprehensive survey on the forefront of research, employing state-of-the-art survey methodology.   NHANES produces an array of information used to guide medical practice and develop health policy in areas such as obesity and nutrition, cardiovascular disease and prevention, asthma, oral health, health behaviors and environmental health.   The survey combines personal interviews with standardized physical examinations, diagnostic procedures, and laboratory tests on a sample of approximately 5,000 persons per year.   The survey is conducted in specially-designed mobile examination centers which cross the country to reach the survey's nationally representative sample population. Findings from NHANES are considered the gold standard for data on chronic and infectious diseases, environmental exposures and patterns of growth and development.   NHANES data are the foundation for growth charts, used by pediatrician and parent alike to measure the growth and development of America's children.   The NHANES program is often used as a model for surveys in other communities within the US as well as in the international community.   The NHANES Director plans, manages, organizes and directs all programs, surveys and research activities of the Division of Health and Nutrition Examinations Statistics, and provides executive leadership and scientific direction to all program functions, survey operations and substantive and methodological activities.
