Michelle Flesaker presents at NEACSM

Second year lab member, Michelle Flesaker presented her research entitled, “Menopause-Associated Psychological Symptoms and Physical Activity in Midlife Women” at the 2019 New England American College of Sports Medicine conference in Providence, RI.

Her analysis of self-reported data revealed that higher levels of physical activity were related to fewer negative psychological and fewer vasomotor symptoms in our population. The preliminary data suggest that habitual physical activity may aid in the management of physiological and psychological symptoms of menopause.
