Behavior Evaluation through Survey Teledata (BEST) 4 Health Laboratory

Have you been contacted to take a survey? Visit the Illinois Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.

The BEST 4 Health Lab consists of an experienced team of surveyors who conduct live telephone interviews. Currently, the lab’s project includes fielding a behavioral health study, the Illinois Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (IL-BRFSS). This study helps state and county health departments to allocate resources to address current health trends. The results from those surveys can be utilized in healthcare policy and healthcare resources decisions.
