Post-partum Volunteers Sought For Exercise Study
The exercise science department is looking for women who have recently
given birth to participate in a study that looks at postpartum exercise
prescription. The study will explore the acute effects of circuit weight
training and subsequent acceptance of breast milk by infants.
The study will be conducted through July 27 at the UNH Exercise Science
Laboratory located in the Field House. It consists of five sessions: a
screening, a 1RM test of 11 nautilus machines, and three sessions of data
collection. This is ground breaking research, as there is very little data
on the short-term effects of this type of postpartum exercise.
Candidates should be 2-4 months postpartum. Contact Timothy Quinn, associate
professor in the kinesiology department, at 2-1830 or email@example.com or Jay
Hydren at (508) 954 9153 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
