Concordia researcher leads study that finds kids reduce physical activity for heart patients

Though the results were not as expected, this study highlights steps that should be taken to encourage people with a coronary disease to avoid a sedentary lifestyle; an important risk factor for future major cardiovascular events. "This study has led us to reconsider the way we go about motivating our patients to change their lifestyle habits, says Dr. Bacon, the director of the study. Perhaps our efforts should target the patient's entire family. It would be interesting to explore this approach in a subsequent study."
