Study Background
How does trauma or PTSD affect heart health?

Stress has long been suggested as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. In this study, we want to examine how trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affect endothelial function, which is a measure of blood vessel function associated with heart health.

By participating in this study, you will be helping researchers identify potential future treatment targets for individuals who have experienced traumatic events. Help advance research and join our compensated study today!
