HALO Director Dr. Mark Tremblay was quoted in an article titled, “The geography of obesity,” that was recently published in Canadian Geographic.

From the article:

Better analyses of the links between [sedentary behaviour] and obesity are in high demand, he explains. The widespread escalation in body mass, Tremblay argues, can be understood only by closely studying the ways that Canadians eat, sleep and move around the places they live. “The minutiae of our daily activities has changed in ways that promote obesity,” he argues. “We need to know much more about the lifestyle factors propelling this epidemic.”
