Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System

by:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, otherwise referred to as CDC, is a United States Federal government agency operating under the Department of Health and Human Services that is largely accountable for safeguarding public health and safety through the acquisition of additional information that could lead to the improvement of health-related decisions.
