Research Focus

My research focus is prevention, remission, and self-management support in diabetes. My research is funded by the CIHR, Heart & Stroke Foundation, Lawson Foundation, and Diabetes Canada. I have published over 150 papers and my research has received a high level of media coverage because of its direct relevance to patients, practitioners, and policy makers. I am co-author of Diabetes Canada clinical practice guidelines on remission, physical activity, and type 2 diabetes pharmacotherapy.
