Based on the data you want to collect, we’ll distribute your survey via email to the CHEST NetWork that most closely matches your target audience. Surveys will be hosted on CHEST’s website and can run up to 4 weeks. Once your survey is closed, results will be incorporated into CHEST’s analytics platform, and a data mapping plan will be drafted for you.
