New PCWH Paper Published – Severe Pediatric Obesity

Our most recent paper including data from PCWH families was published online (here) today by BMC Pediatrics. As many of you know, little has been published regarding severe obesity in children, so our paper is relatively unique in showing that boys and girls with SO not only have a worse cardiometabolic health profile, but their lifestyle habits are less favourable than their less overweight/obese peers.

Congratulations to Hebah (PhD Student in Nutrition at UAlberta) for getting her first academic publication!
