Dr. Anne-Sophie Brazeau was recently selected as the recipient of the Prix Engagement 2017 – Lussier Dale Parizeau by l’Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec (OPDQ) for her scientific rigour, perseverance and projects commitment. Dr. Brazeau is a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Kaberi Dasgupta, Associate Professor in the Divisions of Internal Medicine, Clinical Epidemiology, and Endocrinology and Metabolism at McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine and researcher at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre.

“I am very thankful for this great award,” says Dr. Brazeau. “I think it is important to get involved in our professional association if we want our profession to be truly recognized and to continue to grow. I have been involved in many different committees and activities at l’Ordre Professionnel des Diététistes du Québec over the past 10 years and currently, I am the president of the committee on the revision of the Clinical Nutrition Textbook (Manuel de Nutrition Clinique). I am very enthusiastic about this project, as I believe it will be greatly appreciated by dietitians.” Read more
