The Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO) was established in 2007 in response to the escalating obesity crisis and the increasing complexity of related co-morbidities. Today the HALO team consists of 17 staff (including 5 researchers), a childhood obesity clinical team (Centre for Healthy Active Living), 16 graduate students, trainees, undergraduate students, and many community volunteers. Since its inception in 2007, HALO has received over $14.5 million in research funding; produced more than 600 peer-reviewed publications; has given more than 1050 scholarly presentations locally, nationally and internationally; and secured more than 1.5 billion media impressions!
