The newly created McGill Research Centre for Physical Activity & Health serves as a focal point for researchers with an interest in promoting health through physical activity. To set the wheels in motion, we have organized our first annual symposium entitled: "Making Connections”. Speakers include active members and collaborators in our research centre, along with others with whom we hope to generate new linkages. We invite you and your trainees to come and learn about our research and join us in discovering the PATH to better health.
Undergraduate science students: Learn about cutting-edge research over lunch with cool profs. Soup and Science starts at 11:30 AM each day, September 8-12, 2014. Seats are limited, so don't be late. Come for the soup; stay for the science!
The McGill Career Planning Service (CaPS) would like to welcome all new students to McGill and welcome back all returning students. Whether you are just starting or finishing up, be sure to take advantage of CaPS in the year ahead. We are here to help you - whether you are trying to find a part-time job, prepare grad school applications, find post-graduation work or find out career possibilities related to your major.

I spent quite some time talking with the reporter who wrote this story about the Food Babe. She did quote me correctly but as far as having lots of fans and "some" critics goes...well those "some" consist of members of the scientific community who know a lot more about food science than the "fans."
