Welcome all MESA Participants
MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis) is an important medical research
study that involves more than 6,000 men and women from six communities in the
United States. Participants in MESA come from diverse race and ethnic groups,
including African Americans, Latinos, Asians, and Caucasians. The MESA study is
investigating the early stages of a disease called atherosclerosis, also known
as "hardening of the arteries".
