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 6 researchers), a childhood obesity clinical team (Centre for Healthy Active Living), 17 graduate students, and many community volunteers. Since its inception in 2007, HALO has received over $12 million in research funding; produced more than 520 peer-reviewed publications; has given more than 980 scholarly presentations locally, nationally and internationally; and secured more than 1.3 billion media impressions!
