Research Synopsis

My research interests focus on clinical trials involving nutrition and development in young children as well as the creation of tools to facilitate evidence informed nutritional child health promotion in the primary care setting. This is being accomplished through the development of a large Canadian practice based primary care research network called TARGet Kids!
