Abstract
The Canadian Forces Command and Staff College (CFCSC) project was initiated in 1981 to study coronary risk factors in the CFCSC Canadian student population, who, over the previous few years had exhibited a seven times higher incidence for coronary heart disease (CAD) than the sex and age matched national average. As a progression from the original project, this study was undertaken to investigate the traditional risk factors for CAD plus several behavioral risk factors (ie type A behavior, anger, anxiety hostility). These risk factors were measured prior to the course plus at what was considered to be the peak stress period (ie three months into the course) for the students.
