Congratulations to incoming PhD student Silvia Gonzalez from Colombia who was recently awarded the prestigious Ontario Trillium Scholarship. Silvia just arrived at HALO from Bogota in late August and will spend the next 3-4 years doing her PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Ottawa. Silvia’s dissertation research will look at physical activity and sedentary behaviors among Colombian children and adolescents: patterns, correlates and international comparisons in the context of the epidemiological transition under the supervision of Professor Mark Tremblay.
