Dr. Indhu Gopal and her students, JCSU juniors Imani Scott, and Waynee Hyman.


At the JCSU HealthPlex, a student fills-out the HEART survey on health with JCSU faculty member Dr. Indhu Gopal, JCSU junior, Imani Scott, and a Novant Health representative at the table available to answer questions.

The JCSU HealthPlex was one data collection site for faculty researcher, Dr. Indhu Gopal and her students, JCSU junior Imani Scott, and Waynee Hyman, a junior majoring in Physical Education with a minor in Sports Medicine and an award-winning NCAA indoor track and field champion for both athletics and academics. Marian Jones, Director of the JCSU Health Center was also critical to the research as she coordinated the screening with Novant Health. Novant helped with the screening, blood work, and anthropometric measures of study participants. The research study, entitled Anthropometric Measurements and Lipid Variables as Predictors of Cardiovascular Disease in College Students: A Pilot Study was funded through the STAR Grant, a program of the Smith Institute for Applied Research available to all faculty and staff.
