Research and Professional Interests:
My experiences as a nutritionist/dietitian have been quite varied and this is reflected in my teaching and research. I teach courses related to clinical nutrition, nutritional epidemiology, and methods of nutrition research. My research program deals with issues related to health of women and children, dietary assessment, and nutrition policy. Some of the research projects currently on-going include understanding food management strategies in food insecure families, consumer use and understanding of food labels, relationship between diet quality and body weight through analysis of the Canadian Community Health Survey Cycle 2.2.
Being an active member of the professional community is an important responsibility. I am a member of Dietitians of Canada – I was presented with the Volunteer Recognition Award in 2003 and 2004. My contribution has included membership on the Board of Directors (2000-2002), editor of the research program for national conference (2006), membership on the University Accreditation Committee (current), author and reviewer for the Practice-based Evidence in Nutrition (PEN) project (current). I am registered through the Nova Scotia Dietetics Association.
I am involved in several national level committees that represent government and industry interests related to nutrition policy. I have served on the expert panel that guided Health Canada on implementation of the Dietary Reference Intakes. A major outcome of this committee was development of the revised food guide ‘Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide’. I was a member of the expert panel convened by the Canadian Population Health Initiative to develop a policy document promoting health body weights. Currently, I am a member of the scientific advisory panels for Dairy Farmers of Canada, and the Canadian Sugar Institute.
