DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — Residents in the Dan River region are participating in a national health and nutrition survey.
The Danville Register and Bee (http://bit.ly/QovBrw ) says doctors, nurses and other medical personnel began testing residents Wednesday at a mobile clinic in Danville.
The tests include hearing, lung function and blood. Medical personnel measure residents' height and weight. Residents also are questioned about nutrition.
The survey is a part of an annual study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Center for Health Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau. The study looks at 15 communities across the U.S.
