On April 12, Gunstad, Spitznagel and Glickman introduced their current, ongoing study of exercise in people with heart failure at the "Grey Matters" conference hosted by the Case Western Reserve University Center on Aging at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing. "The study is winding down and we'll have results by the end of the year," Gunstad said.
They presented their findings in 2011:
