Congratulations to Kendra Brett (PhD student of Dr. Adamo), HALO’s latest team member to be selected to attend the Canadian Obesity Network’s Summer Obesity “Bootcamp.” Since 2006 CON-RCO and Laval University have collaborated to host Summer Obesity Boot Camps designed to transfer the latest research information to top young students and professionals, and to create a sense of community among young professionals interested in obesity. Each Boot Camp consists of nine days of intensive teaching and networking exercise, offered to 24 of the top young obesity researchers in the country. The Boot Camp covers all aspects of obesity ranging from epidemiology and public health to cell biology, energy, regulation, clinical management and health policy.
