Sustainable Health Questionnaire (SHQ)

The SHQ questionnaire measures lifestyle-based risk of cardiovascular and metabolic disease, providing scores for diet, exercise, stress and tobacco, and calculates overall lifestyle risk as well as Framingham Formula 10-year and the American College of Cardiology / American Heart Association scores.

The scoring system behind the SHQ was devised in 1999 by a team, led by Dr. Bill Haskell at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, based on over 100 years of collective expertise in population health and disease prevention. Since 2010, the SHQ has been used by the Cornell Program for Healthy Living, Cornell University's premier health plan for endowed employees and their families.
