Sitting is Not the New Smoking, But Moving is Important

Allana has spoken to audiences of all shapes and sizes around the world on the importance of healthy active living. Allana is currently working as an epidemiologist with the Public Health Agency of Canada and an Affiliate Investigator with the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Group at the CHEO Research Institute.

Making Lifestyle Changes Requires Some Motivation and a Whole Lot of Good Habits

Michelle Guerrero is a postdoctoral fellow at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, working within the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group. She completed her undergraduate degree at Laurentian University. She then moved to Windsor to complete her Masters in Human Kinetics and PhD in Kinesiology. Most of her education and training has focused on the psychology of physical activity and exercise. Michelle is also a certified Health and Wellness coach and helps people adopt healthy lifestyles and behaviors.

Setting Up For Success: Using Food as the Foundation For Building a Healthy Family and Healthy Home
Presenter: Stephanie Carson, CHEO Research Coodinator

Stephanie Carson developed a true interest in preventative health after learning about the science of human health and the role lifestyle plays on health outcomes while completing her Bachelor of Health Science at the University of Ottawa. She began to look at physical activity, nutrition and healthy living as an investment, a proactive solution that can help reduce the burden of chronic lifestyle-related diseases and ultimately help improve quality of life. She moved on to pursue a Master of Science in Human Health and Nutritional Science at the University of Guelph, and she continues to be a passionate health and wellness advocate who aims to inspire others in the community to live a healthy life.

Snacks and refreshments will be available. Donations to support School Council initiatives would be appreciated.
