Aerobic Exercise Effects on Endothelial Health Status in Pre- and Post Menopausal African American Women
When compared to other racial groups, African American women (AAW) reach menopause at an earlier age and are at an increase risk for CVD and endothelial health complications. A known intervention for the treatment of both CVD and menopausal changes is aerobic exercise training (AEXT). The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of AEXT on endothelial function between pre- and post- menopausal AAW.
