TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Cherokee Nation Public Health officials are conducting a health survey among CN citizens in northeastern Oklahoma as part of a partnership between a team led by CN epidemiologist Dr. Ashley Comiford and University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

The survey aims to describe health behaviors of CN citizens living within the 14 counties of the tribe’s jurisdiction. The results will be used to address serious health problems among Cherokees related to chronic diseases and to help to improve public health services and programs within the CN.

The survey is being conducted over the phone and approximately 3,400 CN citizens will be surveyed. CN citizens will be randomly selected from a list of adults and asked to take 20 to 30 minutes to complete the survey. Responses are confidential and survey participants will not be named or identified on any reports. Participants will be compensated for their time. Participation in this survey is voluntary and does not affect the benefits and services received at CN.

The CN Institutional Review Board has approved the project, which is funded by a grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For more information, call Comiford at 918-453-5000, ext. 7076 or Dr. Sohail Khan at (918) 453-5602.
