Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving Everyone!

This year’s Thanksgiving is a special one for us – it comes on the 10th Anniversary of my immigration to Canada (with now five years in Edmonton!).

Canada has been good to us and I have achieved more in my profession than I could have hoped for.

The Canadian Obesity Network (which I helped found in 2006) has, with over 8,000 members, grown into the largest professional obesity organisation in the world and has, by any  measure, changed the way many Canadian professionals now think about obesity – indeed, Canada’s obesity research and practice community is stronger than ever.

To all my friends, both professional and personal – to all my faithful followers on these pages, FacebookTwitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and elsewhere, I wish you all a

Happy Thanksgiving!
