Dr. Pat Longmuir, a Junior Research Scientist with HALO, will lead “Healthier CHEO Kids”, an innovative program of clinical service through applied research. By prescribing “exercise as pediatric medicine”, CHEO will be among the first to use the well-known benefits of physical activity and exercise to treat and prevent childhood disease, chronic illness and disability, and promote optimal child health. This evidence-based initiative is the result of tremendous collaboration between the CHEO Foundation, CHEO and CHEO RI working toward our common goal – healthier kids.
