Renin angiotensin aldosterone system components and vascular function in women after
an adverse pregnancy outcome (PI: Abbi Lane-Cordova) Aims of this project are to:
Determine whether renin, aldosterone, and AT1-AA are associated with sensitive measures
of vascular function and evidence of subclinical CVD in women after pregnancy.
Determine the effects of a lifestyle intervention during pregnancy through 1 year
postpartum on blood pressure trajectories in black and white women in the HIPP Study.

institute) Aims of this project are to:
Determine whether objectively measured physical activity and sedentary behavior during
pregnancy are associated with evidence of placental inflammation and malperfusion.

with blood pressure 6 weeks after delivery.
Vascular function in individuals with post-concussion syndrome (PI: Davis Moore)
A Brief, Mindfulness-Based Add-on to Group Prenatal Care; Co-Investigators James Cook

Determine acceptability of a brief (5-10 min) mind-body intervention delivered at
the end of group prenatal care visits.
Determine preferences from among several types of pre- existing, evidence-based, mind-body
