We’re pleased to share the success of some our Team ABC3 members in recently receiving CIHR grants!
We are very pleased to announce that our first Team ABC3 paper has been accepted for publication in BMC Research Notes!
The research proposal highlights our seven study designs and methodological approaches to examine a host of issues (e.g., definition, prevalence, health risks, health services use, treatment) related to severe obesity in Canadian children, findings that will have national and international relevance to researchers, clinicians, health care administrators, and decision-makers.
Stay tuned for the pdf; Congrats, team!
Take a peek at some of Team ABC3 members’ latest publications!
Mark Tremblay (Team ABC3 Co-Investigator) reviewed criterion-referenced standards for cardiorespiratory fitness in international children and youth (Lang et al., British Journal of Sports Medicine, 2017). Mark also examined whether children and youth meeting the new Canadian 24-hour movement guidelines was associated with health indicators (Carson et al., Preventive Medicine, 2017).
Amy McPherson (Team ABC3 Project Leader) evaluated the feasibility and acceptability of a coaching intervention related to physical activity and diet in males with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (McPherson et al., Developmental Neurorehabilitation, 2017).
Jess Haines (Team ABC3 Co-Investigator) explored associations between home environment chaos, fat intake, and morning serum cortisol level in parents of preschool children (MacRae et al., Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, 2017).
