Healthy adults needed for cardiac study: 3/98

Healthy adults needed for cardiac risk study

HEALTHY MEN AND WOMEN between the ages of 25 and 75 who are interested in learning about their cardiac risk factors are sought by researchers studying early evidence of atherosclerosis and heart disease.

Volunteers should be in good general health and of normal body weight, but may have high blood pressure. Volunteers may have a family history of heart disease or diabetes, but should be free of those conditions themselves.

The study is being conducted under the direction of Dr. Gerald M. Reaven, emeritus professor of medicine, and his associates. For more information, call Cindy Lamendola at 723-7024.
