The study was part of the project, “Childhood Stressors and Cardiovascular Disease Risk in Adulthood: A Longitudinal Investigation of Divergent Explanatory Models,” supported by the University of Iowa Injury Prevention Research Center in the College of Public Health and funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
