Ladies Only! Participate in the BPW Women’s Health Red Belt Survey

Posted on September 4, 2013 by youngbpwi in BPW International

Participate in an important and historic worldwide project in the evaluation of a cardiovascular risk factor; Waist to Stature Ratio (WSR)!

All responses are ANONYMOUS

The International Federation of Business and Professional Women (BPW) North American and Non Spanish Speaking Caribbean Health Committee (along with other regional BPW affiliates) are collecting information on cardiovascular risk factors. What will distinguish this initiative will be the assessment of two parameters: 



From the ratio of these two parameters it’s possible to obtain WSR. The anonymous data collected will be sent by e-mail to the project’s central secretary and Nutrition Foundation of Italy (NFI) for statistical processing. In turn the data will be presented at the 2014 BPW International Congress in South Korea!

You will be asked to provide personal measurements of your height, weight, waist circumference and (optional) blood pressure. In addition you will be asked a few other supporting questions. In total this survey should take about 5-10 minutes including the measurements. All responses are ANONYMOUS. 

Be part of history and help reach the goal of 100 participants by December 31st, 2013.
