An MTSU graduate student is helping postmenopausal women learn how to improve their health.
Saori Ishikawa explained her bone density research in an interview aired Dec. 17 and 23 on “MTSU On the Record” with host Gina Logue on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org). You can listen to a podcast of the broadcast here.
Ishikawa is attempting to determine the impact of sedentary behavior on women at a time in their lives when loss of bone density could lead to fractures or even death.
Her hypothesis is that even moderate lifestyle changes, such as washing dishes by hand instead of using the dishwasher or walking the dog an extra 10 minutes per day, could make a substantial difference in women’s bone health.
