Biography

Research at the Preventive Cardiology Center and Stress Testing Laboratories focus on several areas that include the evaluation of clinical outcomes of patients enrolled in cardiac rehabilitation/secondary prevention programs with a special emphasis on women, racial minorities, and persons with diabetes, obesity, heart failure, and peripheral arterial disease. Evaluation of the physiologic changes that occur after moderate intensity exercise and studies that aim to evaluate and develop exercise-testing protocols are ongoing.
