UCLA Program Aims to Help Local Women at Risk for Heart Disease

As part of a UCLA-sponsored program which aims to understand how mobile phones and smartphones can be used to empower individuals to make lifestyle changes, several ladies from the Faithful Central Bible Church congregation were given a smartphone app to help them achieve their own heathy lifestyle goals. The app used each of the lady’s eating and activity patterns to deliver to her tailored advice on healthy diet and exercise habits.

Two studies within the UCLA-sponsored program are currently looking for volunteers. If you are interested in joining one of these studies or want more information please contact
