Physiologic and Social Stressors and Health during the Menopausal Transition
Project Co-Leaders - Emily Oken, MD, MPH & Jorge Chavarro, MD, ScM, ScD

This project will be embedded in the longstanding cohort study, Project VIVA, led by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Project VIVA is a cohort of over 2,000 mother-child pairs who were enrolled when the mother was pregnant between 1999-2002 and who continue to be engaged in follow up data collection. Focusing on the moms, the investigators in this study will examine physiological and social stressors in early life and around the time of pregnancy as predictors of body composition, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and sleep duration and quality as these women now reach mid-life.
