Loyola School of Nursing Researchers and Hines VA to Study Mindfulness in Women Veterans at Risk for Heart Disease
Loyola University Chicago Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing (MNSON) researchers and Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital recently were given an award to study mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) in women veterans at risk for heart disease. They will receive approximately $1.1 million for this four-year study from the VA Nursing Research Initiative (NRI). MBSR is a form of complementary medicine that combines yoga and meditation.
