VCH-Richmond is excited to share an opportunity for a student volunteer to gain hands-on research experience working in the Cardiac Rehab department at Richmond Hospital. The ‘Atrial Fibrillation Lifestyle Project’ is a randomized-control study, led by Principal Investigator Dr. Teddi Orenstein, MD. The objective of the study is to determine if structured diet and exercise programs will reduce both Atrial Fibrillation and modifiable risk factors (blood pressure, A1C, etc.).
We are looking for one or two students to volunteer for 4-6 hours/week during the month of June 2019. The volunteering will take place at Richmond Hospital in the Cardiac Rehab exercise gym, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Volunteers will spend their time in the intervention group exercise classes, and be responsible for collecting data measures on participants as they exercise, monitoring and ensuring the safety of participants, and assisting with modified exercises for limited mobility participants. There is a possibility of student volunteers having additional roles in Dr. Orenstein’s office doing data entry, data management, and literature searches.
If you are interested, please contact Amy Booth, Research Coordinator at email@example.com with a current resume and a short blurb about yourself. Students with a valid criminal record check and a kinesiology background are specifically encouraged to apply. All questions and inquiries should also be directed to Amy Booth.
