WOMEN WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE NEEDED FOR EXERCISE STUDY

     COLUMBUS -- Women who have recently been diagnosed with high
blood pressure and are not on any medication are being sought for
a study at The Ohio State University College of Nursing.

     Women joining this 20-week study, being conducted by Anne
Fish, a registered nurse who has a doctorate in nursing, will
participate in an exercise program as Fish tries to determine the
effect of exercise on blood pressure.

     Women will use exercise machines during their supervised
one-hour aerobic workout three times a week at the College of
Nursing.

     Fish is looking for women between the ages of 30 and 70 who
have blood pressure of 140/90 or above, lead a sedentary
lifestyle, and who may be slightly overweight.

     Participants will be reimbursed during this study.

     To learn more about this project, call 292-9296.
