Leon, Bronas collaborate on study on heart disease in women
Dr. Arthur Leon in the School of Kinesiology and Dr. Ulf Bronas, clinical assistant professor in the School of Nursing are collaborators on the LiteHEARTEN study.
The current issue of Minnesota Nursing features a story, Building Healthy Hearts which tells about the 12-week study examining the relationship of stress and exercise on women with heart disease. Conducted through Abbott Northwestern Hospital's Women's Health Program, the LiteHEARTEN study compares the effects of stress management vs. exercise training on cardiovascular functions and quality of life in women with known heart disease. Researchers hope this project will be a pilot for a larger study.
