Volunteers needed with high blood pressure

Submitted by Jacob T. Caldwell

K-State researchers are currently recruiting male and female volunteers with high blood pressure, ages 18-65 years, to participate in a research project at the Physical Activity and Nutrition Clinical Research Consortium, or PAN-CRC, within Lafene Health Center.

Anyone diagnosed with high blood pressure is eligible for participation. You will be asked to perform handgrip exercise following ingestion of beetroot juice or a placebo juice. By volunteering, you will help us determine how beetroot juice impacts your ability to control blood pressure and blood flow.

For more information, contact Jacob Caldwell at jcaldwe5@k-state.edu, or Carl Ade at cade@k-state.edu.
This study has been reviewed by the Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 8501.
