Westat to Continue Supporting Premier Automated Dietary Assessment Tool

Westat has won the Scientific and Technical Services for the Automated Self-Administered 24-Hour (ASA24) Dietary Assessment System project. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) contract, a 5-year award, is valued at $9.9 million.

The ASA24 is an online, freely available dietary assessment tool that was developed by Westat for NCI and first released in 2010. The ASA24 system is used by researchers for epidemiologic, interventional, behavioral, and clinical research. Westat has maintained and enhanced the tool over the years, adding new functionality, making it mobile friendly and updating the food and nutrient database using National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and U.S. Department of Agriculture databases. 

“Westat looks forward to supporting NCI in this work, continually enhancing the system so that it remains the premier dietary assessment research tool,” noted Patricia Shifflett, Vice President and Practice Director, Public Health and Epidemiology.
