My research highlights the benefits of regular physical activity and social support to those experiencing chronic stress in their lives. My work suggests that the stress-disease link can possibly be broken when people maintain a healthy physical activity regimen and close relationships with others. My current research, supported by a K99/R00 award from The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, will examine (1) the dynamic interplay between lifestyle factors and accumulation of life stress across adulthood to predict risk for cardiovascular disease and associated physiological weathering and (2) the cellular effects of an exercise intervention in chronically stressed individuals.
