reports on a study that examines benefits of exercise in older military veterans. “We’re trying to figure out a way to help veterans and the population at large get benefits from exercise, but do it in less time,” says Bruce Troen
, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine
and director of the Center for Successful Aging, both in the Jacobs School. Troen adds, “It’s not just about the years in our life, but it’s also about the life in our years. And what we’re finding is that quality of life with a high intensity interval training program can be significantly enhanced."
