Free Mentorship Offer!

One of the consequences of the COVID epidemic is that I am now doing most of my work from home.

This has led to significant efficiencies, leaving me with some extra time on my hands, which I would like to put to good use.

So here is my offer to my professional readers:

I am offering a free 60 minute mentorship video-call to three individuals struggling with any one of the following questions:

  • Are you a medical practitioner interested in improving your approach to helping your patients manage their obesity?
  • Are you a new faculty member hoping to build an academic career in obesity research?
  • Are you interested in obesity but can’t decide whether a career in academia, medical practice, government, or industry is right for you?

If you are interested in talking to me about any of these issues, please send me an e-mail describing (in 500 words or less) your current situation and what you hope to get out of this call. Please also explain (in 300 words or less) why you think my advice would be of value to you.

Please provide your complete contact details including a phone number where you can be reached. You can e-mail me at

I will pick three individuals based on whether or not I feel I can be of help to them.

My only request to the “winners” is that they are willing to make a donation (you decide the value) to Obesity Canada.

Act now, as I will only be accepting entries over the next three days (end of day Friday, June 26).

Please note – these mentorship calls are for professionals only – I cannot give any personal medical advice to individuals living with obesity.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
