SUBJECT: PSA: Volunteers needed for research study

DATE: August 27, 2012

Researchers at Memorial University are conducting a study to identify where individuals with heart disease exercise and to determine whether these places differ for males and females. Participants will be asked to wear a portable GPS unit and an accelerometer (activity monitor) for seven days at two different times and to fill out exercise and diet surveys.
If you have heart disease and you are not participating in a cardiac rehabilitation program, you may be eligible to participate in this study. For more information or to find out if you are eligible, please contact Joanne Smith-Young, at (709) 777-7106 or jsmithyo@mun.ca.  .
