The first FOCUS project is a big one – exciting proof of concept for the idea that public and private partners can create real impact in our quest to prevent and treat obesity effectively.  
 
 
We leveraged $500,000 of FOCUS funds into upwards of $4.0 million or more over five years for these highly coveted grants that recognize research excellence. The successful applicants were chosen this fall, and they were officially introduced to the Canadian obesity community during the 4th Canadian Obesity Summit which took place April 28-May 2, 2015.
