The main aim of this study is to investigate the effects of stress in everyday life on middle-aged and older African Americans’ cardiovascular health. The research project is designed to identify and model the daily psychological, behavioral, and biological pathways through which daily psychological, behavioral, and biological pathways may exacerbate and protect from cardiovascular risk among middle-aged and older African Americans, particularly those living in urban environments like Detroit.
