Using data 6om the Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study of older black and white men and women aged 70-79 years, we found that physical capacity and bone density remain largely independent, which suggests that interventions to reduce fracture incidence should target improving both physical performance and BMD. These original investigations were all undertaken by the candidate who was instrumental in their design, wrote all the manuscripts, conducted all the statistical analyses, supervised and played a major role in the recruitment and training of subjects undertaking the exercise trials, and performed many of the measurements. To date, articles comprising the submitted work have been cited 413 times.
