What's Happening Now

The Virtual Group Exercise at Home (V-GEAH) randomized controlled trial, funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), was completed. The results of the V-GEAH study were published in the journal "Gerontology and Geriatrics."

Barbara, a participant in the trial study, walks for 45-minutes every day with John (who joined her walking) in her apartment community room. She also does Tai-chi and a group exercise once a week and still does the Week 24 exercise (last V-GEAH exercise) almost every day using ankle weights.
