Title: Feeling with your heart – Stress, emotions, and cardiovascular disease

NOTE: This session was cancelled due to inclement weather.

This talk will address the methodological challenges of studying the connection between emotion, stress, and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Kubzansky will discuss why looking at behavioral and biological processes downstream of emotion can help answer the question of whether emotion is causally related to CVD.
