TWU exercise/nutrition study needs female volunteers


DENTON — Female volunteers are needed for a Texas Woman’s University Institute of Women’s Health study to determine how a single bout of exercise influences risk factors for heart disease.

Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 44, non-smokers, not obese, not pregnant, not currently exercising more than 60 minutes a week, not on birth control, not taking any medications for diabetes or heart disease and have had a normal menstrual cycle over the past three months. Details about qualifying for the study are available at

Participants will be asked to complete four research trials (two trials will involve exercise and two will involve rest) over a four-month period. They will ingest a milkshake and will donate a small amount of blood on four separate occasions over a four-month period.

The total time commitment for this study is approximately 30 hours over a six-month period. Participants will receive financial compensation upon completion of the study and a free dietary analysis, a free blood analysis and a free fitness assessment.
