2) Trajectories of physical activity and sedentary time after military separation: What are the longitudinal trajectories of recreational physical activity and sedentary time between Veteran and non-Veteran postmenopausal women in the WHI?;
3) Longitudinal Cognitive Trajectories of Women Veterans from the WHI: What do longitudinal global cognitive functioning data tell us about the complex array of military-related health resilience and risk factors and risk for cognitive decline?
Intended audience: Researchers, clinicians and others interested in the health of older women.
