New Team ABC3 Member!

welcome__by_tainted_adopts-d9v7sgb.pngWe’d like to share a very warm Team ABC3 welcome to Stephan Oreskovich!

Stephan is the new Clinical Research Project Assistant with Drs. Catherine Birken and Jill Hamilton (Team ABC3 Project Leaders) at the SickKids Team Obesity Management Program (STOMP).

Stephan recently completed his MSc from McMaster University under the supervision of fellow Team ABC3 Project Leader, Dr. Katherine Morrison. His thesis focused on the utilization of magnetic resonance imaging to capture cold-activated brown adipose tissue in healthy humans. Now at SickKids, Stephan will help coordinate the STOMP evaluation study, the STOMP Early Years Trial (study 5.7), and local efforts for our severe obesity and global developmental delay surveillance study (study 5.8).

Welcome aboard, Stephan!
