Background: The significance of quality of life (QOL) as a public health concern was established by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1949; health is not
just an absence of disease, it is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. Although many studies link social factors to health, there is a lack of published research about the association of quality of life and the presence of indicators for metabolic syndrome, specifically in postmenopausal women. Objective: The objective of this study is to assess the impact of quality of life on risk factors of cardio metabolic syndrome in postmenopausal women. Method: Participants will be recruited as part of the ReCHARGE with Strawberries study using print, digital, and social media advertisements. Data collection will include demographics, physical characteristics, physical activity level, diet records and medical history. Quality of life is to be assessed using 65 questions drawn from validated surveys that have been proven to be reliable assessments of quality of life and factors that are detriments to health.
