The AlmaMAC 198: Examining the role of sleep and exercise on cardiovascular health with Josh Cherubini


Sleep deprivation is associated with poor heart health including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and even mortality. While exercise has been shown to have positive effects on cardiovascular health, less is known how and if it can counteract some of the negative effects of sleep deprivation. Josh Cherubini, a 1st year Master’s student in the Department of Kinesiology, is aiming to better understand how irregular sleeping behaviours and exercise levels interact to impact cardiovascular function. Tune in to learn more about the techniques that Josh uses in his lab, what impact he anticipates his research having, and his favourite go-to exercise!
