We are studying different ways to help older adults improve their health
CLIP is examining the effect of physical activity only, a combination of physical activity and weight loss, or successful aging education on mobility disability. We are currently recruiting adults 60-79 years of age who are overweight and have a history of cardiovascular disease or the metabolic syndrome to participate.
Participants come to the Clinical Research Center of Wake Forest University and the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center for screening and testing over an 18-month period while participating in one of the study’s three intervention arms.They are treated in eight successive waves consisting of approximately 38 participants each. These waves are drawn from Cooperative Extension centers in four different counties of North Carolina.
