Dr. Geneviève Leduc moved to Ottawa after completing a Doctoral Degree in nutrition at Université Laval in Quebec City where she studied environmental influences on adiposity and fitness levels in elementary school-aged children. She also contributed to the implementation of pilot interventions to teach healthy nutrition and to enhance physical activity participation in fun and interactive ways in elementary schools and summer day camps in Quebec City. She first joined HALO in 2012 as the project manager of the Canadian site for the International Study of Childhood Obesity, Lifestyle and the Environment (ISCOLE) and was back with the group in 2015 after a maternity leave. She is currently working as a Research Coordinator for various projects alongside Drs. Mark Tremblay and Richard Larouche. Outside of work, Geneviève loves to cook healthy and delicious meals for her family and participate in running events and short distance triathlons.
