Dr. Kristi Adamo recently attended the Canadian Foundation for Women’s Health 2013 Health Women, Health Future Gala and Research Awards Ceremony in Calgary to receive the W. Garfield Weston Foundation Award in Obesity and Reproductive Health.

Her project “Do built environment neighborhood characteristics predict gestational weight gain?” was one of two grants awarded that focus on projects that advance evidence-based research in pertinent female reproductive health issues.

The other award went to Dr. Alan Bocking (University of Toronto) for his work on the microbiome in obese women.
