The project examined early markers of cardiometabolic disease in 264 young adults. Furthermore, the project studied the association between social status, mental and physical health by use of questionnaires, register information and clinical examinations.

The summary is written by the PhD student.

The defence is public and takes place in Auditorium Aula, Regionshospitalet Gødstrup, Hospitalsparken 15, 7400 Herning. Please read the attached press release for more information.
