Aboard the Mobile Nutrition Research Laboratory, nutritionist Fariba Roughead (right) and nurse Ruth Christianson (middle) prepare volunteer Sue Cherette (on table) for measurement of her body composition with a dual x-ray absorptiometer. Roughead is conducting a study to determine whether supplements containing calcium, copper, and zinc are more effective than those containing only calcium in maintaining bone density of premenopausal women.
