Heather Foulds Successfully Defends Her MSc

August 15, 2010 Recent Events No Comments

We are extremely pleased to announce that Heather Foulds has recently (August 9, 2010) defended her MSc. Heather’s accomplishments during her MSc studies are remarkable with numerous peer-reviewed presentations, abstracts and published articles, and extensive external funding. She was able to complete her thesis is less than the allotted time, despite personally collecting data on over 700 participants. This involved a 13-week lab-based assessment of 106 participants, and a community-based physical activity intervention involving over 500 persons of Aboriginal descent. Her work simply is at the forefront of the field and we are extremely proud of her accomplishments. We are excited to have Heather remain in our laboratory for her PhD studies in the Faculty of Medicine.

Congratulations Heather, you surely deserve every honour that you have received!
