Our research in endothelial function (arterial health) integrates our interests in hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Our goal has been to develop the most effective exercise prescriptions for prevention and treatment of these diseases. Currently, our research has focused on physical activity and postprandial endothelial function. The postprandial period, the period following a meal, is the most critical period for creating the environment for the development of diabetes and heart disease. Physical activity can reduce the threat of the postprandial period. Visit our research page.
