Join the USM Muskie School's Survey Research Center on April 4 as it launches "Survey Says," a series of presentations by center staff that explore recent surveys of Maine's population on topics such as health behaviors, addictions, and more.

The first in the series, "What Do Mainers Really Say About Their Health Behaviors?", will present findings from a recent survey on Maine food and exercise habits, including how often Mainers work out, how often they eat out, and where they buy their food.

The presentation also will include a brief overview of survey methodology and an audience discussion of the findings and their implications.

Mark your calendars for "Survey Says" - the answers might surprise you!
