Research Subjects Needed!

Project Title: The Prevalence of Signs of Early Stage Cardiovascular Disease in a Healthy Adult Population.

Seeking: Male and Female participants age 40-70 years. Must be free of diagnosed cardiovascular disease (former heart attack, stroke, peripheral artery disease, heart failure, or prior heart surgery).

Purpose: To examine the associations between established cardiovascular disease risk factors and signs of abnormal blood vessel size and function.

Measurements will consist of:

· Health History Questionnaire

· Basic body size measurements (height, weight, waist and hip circumferences)

· Measurements of blood vessel thickness and stiffness

· Physical activity assessment

· Body composition analysis

· Blood lipid profile

· Short walking assessment

All volunteers will receive a copy of their blood vessel test results, blood lipid profile, and findings from the body composition and physical activity assessments.

Testing will require 2 visits to the Human Performance Laboratory, scheduled 1 week apart. Visit 1 will require approximately 45 minutes and session 2 will require approximately 40 minutes. Total time commitment will be approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes.

IRB protocol #517609-4
