South Bay : UCLA Study to Focus on Women's Health

UCLA Medical Center will begin a three-year study of women in the South Bay next week to help build a database on women's health issues during midlife. The study is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, which is using seven clinical centers throughout the country to conduct a multiethnic study of women.

The study will focus on 450 Japanese American, Japanese-born and white women ages 40 to 55. Greendale said that UCLA is concentrating on Gardena, where many Japanese Americans reside.
