American Heart Association Selects Leisure Time Physical Activity Paper as Most Impactful in 2015

The American Heart Association (AHA) Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health Council recognized the work of former DCEG fellow Dr. Hannah Arem and Charles E. Matthews, Ph.D., for their study entitled “Leisure time physical activity and mortality: A detailed pooled analysis of the dose‐response relationship.” The paper was selected as one of the most important publications in 2015 in support of the Council’s mission.

Nominations were submitted from well‐recognized names in nutrition, obesity, prevention, physical activity, and cardiometabolic fitness. Selected publications were highlighted during the AHA Epidemiology and Prevention, Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health 2016 Scientific Sessions in March.

This infographic summarizes the findings as reported in the manuscript published by Arem, et al. JAMA Internal Medicine 2015.
