Purpose and Organization

This website brings the research papers and tools my colleagues and I have developed or published into one convenient location. The content is organized by the themes below. The dropdown menu tabs at the top of the page list subtopics with at least one paper or product. The works are listed once and organized by year, from oldest to newest. Feel free to contact me ( to obtain a personal copy, if access is a problem.

Primary Care

The expansion of team-based primary care has meant new opportunities and need for implementation research on nutrition services.

Cardiometabolic Risk

Cardiometabolic risk conditions Include various combinations of hypertension, dyslipidemia, high waist circumference and elevated blood glucose (including metabolic syndrome and pre-diabetes). Prevalence is increasing rapidly in Canada. Diet and increased exercise can improve metabolic dysfunction and reduce the need for medication.


Plant-Based Foods

Increased plant-based foods are widely recommended, based on strong evidence. Yet changing food habits is challenging. This series of studies focuses on promoting increased consumption of fruits, vegetables and dried beans and lentils.
