Learn About Depression & Heart Disease in Women

If you are a nonsmoking post-menopausal woman who does not have heart disease, then you may be eligible to participate in the Women’s Hearts Study, a research study being conducted by Julie Wagner, PhD at the UConn Health Center in Farmington, Connecticut.

If you are eligible and choose to participate you will be asked to:

Visit the Health Center twice at your convenience

Complete an interview and some questionnaires

Give blood samples

Have a sound-wave test of the blood vessel in your arm

Participants will be paid $75 and provided a meal at the Health Center Cafeteria. Other benefits may include free screenings of your cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and measures of inflammation.

Please call: 860.679.7692 OR 800.535.6232

If you live outside of Connecticut, check with your doctor, local hospitals or public health service clinics to see if similar programs may be available.
