Study Title: Physical Activity Intervention for Improving Vascular Comorbidity Risk in Multiple Sclerosis
Study Description: Comorbid health conditions such as high blood lipids, obesity, hypertension, and diabetes are common in individuals with multiple sclerosis. Improving cardiorespiratory fitness through a lifestyle physical activity program may reduce vascular comorbidity risk in people with mild-to-moderate MS.

Researchers at the University of Ottawa are seeking volunteers to participate in a study examining the effects of a lifestyle physical activity intervention on fitness and cardiovascular risk factors in people with multiple sclerosis.
Participation in this study will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis. Principal Investigator: Dr. Lara Pilutti
Recruitment Dates: 2019-05-06 to 2021-01-31
Who can participate: Volunteers between 18-65 years old with relapsing remitting MS who are not currently active may qualify.
