PULLMAN — WSU Health & Wellness Services and the National Aquatic & Sports Medicine Institute are looking for 170 individuals with asthma to participate in an asthma and exercise study.
 
Potential participants must be between 18-40 years old and have medically diagnosed asthma. Upon completion, participants may receive up to $300. Although the study begins in January, individuals interested in participating should sign up for a screening appointment at Health & Wellness Services by Nov. 21. Screening appointments can be scheduled by visiting www.hws.wsu.edu.
 
“Research shows that exercise can be beneficial for people with asthma; however, it can also stimulate an asthmatic episode. The research from this study will show us which types of exercises are most beneficial for people with asthma,” said Bruce Wright, medical director at Health and Wellness Services.
 
The WSU Institutional Review Board has reviewed and approved this study for human subject participation. For more information, go to www.hws.wsu.edu.
