Northern Ontario School of Medicine
As a first year rural family medicine resident I have come to realize the demand and necessity to being active in addressing obesity in my patient population. Northern Ontario appears to be in a unique situation (higher rates of obesity and less accessible resources). I intend on choosing a topic related to pediatric obesity to research. Currently I am in the initial process of making myself aware of problem and networking while formulating my proposal. Thank you for your consideration.
