Psychological Stress and Cardiovascular Health in Juvenile Lupus and Dermatomyositis.

Dr. Ardalan is planning to study the relationships between psychological stress, inflammation and cardiovascular health in children with lupus and dermatomycoses.

“The first main impact that I hope this study will have is to really assess in a rigorous way the ways in which stress might affect cardiovascular health and inflammation in our patients with lupus and dermatomycoses.”

“The second thing I really hope to do is start developing interventions that will help either decrease stress or mitigate its impact on cardiovascular health among our patients with lupus and dermatomycoses.”
