Peter's research featured in Maclean's

Monday, May 18, 2009 Posted by Peter Janiszewski, PhD

Given that today is a holiday and the weather is beautiful (albeit a tad chilly), I thought I’d post something short and sweet.

Late last week a great story was posted on the Maclean’s website which should be of interest to our readers. The story is entitled “Size isn’t everything” and it discusses many of the concepts that have come up in our posts over the past few months. The article is also great as it features the biggest names in Canadian obesity research, most of whom I know personally, including Dr. Arya Sharma, Dr. Jean-Pierre Despres, and my supervisor, Dr. Robert Ross.

Most importantly (for me), my name and work is also mentioned in the article along with these top thinkers in the obesity field (page 2). Given that I am still in the infancy of my academic career, to be named in a national magazine in the presence of such esteemed company is quite an honour. I am flattered, Maclean’s!

Please check out the full article on the Maclean’s website, where you can also see the comment I left in reference to the article. The article will appear in the upcoming print issue of Maclean’s.

Have a great day,
