This study is designed to investigate the roles of socioeconomic and psychosocial factors in cardiovascular disease risk in 300 Mexican-American women from the South San Diego community. Women participated in a comprehensive assessment of stress, psychosocial risk and resilient factors, socio-cultural factors, and bio-behavioral markers of cardiovascular risk, and underwent a 2-day assessment of momentary psychosocial experiences and ambulatory blood pressure. The research is collaborative and inter-disciplinary, involving investigators from SDSUs Department of Psychology and Graduate School of Public Health and UCSD’s School of Medicine.
