Check out this great opportunity to contribute towards the study of sport within society!


Researchers at the Human and Environmental Physiology Research Unit (HEPRU) of the University of Ottawa are currently recruiting participants aged 18 to 75 years to take part in an exercise study.

At this time we are especially in need of older adults (aged 50-75 years) and individuals with type 2 diabetes and/or chronic hypertension. 

Qualifying volunteers will receive a VO2max test (gold standard in assessing aerobic fitness) and a body composition analysis (hydrostatic weighing technique) ($650 value). These results will be provided to you upon completion of the experimental session.

If you want to learn about your physical fitness and are interested in helping researchers at the University of Ottawa study the effects of exercise-induced heat stress in older adults and individuals with diabetes and/or chronic hypertension, give us a call at 613-562-5800 ext. 4270 or email us at hepru@uottawa.ca.

In your reply to this announcement, please include the following information:

• Name
• Age
• Contact information (telephone # and email)

Details of the study will be provided to you upon receipt of your contact information.
