PROFILE: Dr. Valerie Taylor is the psychiatrist-in-chief in the department of medicine at Women’s College Hospital and a scientist at Women’s College Research Institute. Dr. Taylor’s academic focus is on obesity, metabolic syndrome and mental health in both adults and children. She is interested in the developmental origins and common pathophysiology of obesity, diabetes and depression, the concept of food addiction and the impact of pharmacotherapy on weight and behaviour. She also has an interest in women’s mental health and has written and researched on the overlap between mental illness in women and medical outcomes. By examining the complex relationships between mental health, obesity and chronic disease, Dr. Taylor’s research seeks to understand why people with mental illness are likely to die 15-years younger than the average lifespan. With this information, she is committed to creating more evidence based tools that help people to manage their weight effectively, and in a way that is safe and healthy for their minds and bodies. Dr. Taylor is the recipient of numerous grants and research awards and fellowships. She completed her FRCPC training in psychiatry at McMaster University in 2004, followed by a two-year post-doctoral research fellowship in mood disorders with the Faculty of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience in 2006, a clinical Investigator four year fellowship in 2007 and a PhD in medical science in 2008. In addition to leading and co-authoring numerous peer-reviewed publications and book chapters, Dr. Taylor is the author of The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management: A Step by Step Program for
Real People.
