Kevin Belanger has a BSc and MSc in Human Kinetics from the University of Ottawa. Kevin’s Master’s work, completed at HALO under the supervision of Dr. Kristi Adamo, involved measuring cardiorespiratory fitness levels of children with obesity, and evaluating their risk profiles after the children were stratified by a newly developed pediatric obesity screening tool. Kevin re-joined HALO in the summer of 2014 as a Research Coordinator for the CAPL-RBC Learn to Play project. Kevin enjoys several active pursuits outside of HALO which include hockey, soccer, tennis, golf, football and more!
