From walking to school to visiting the playground, children interact with their neighbourhoods every day. Lawson Health Research Institute’s Dr. Jason Gilliland is a leader in the study of how physical environments influence children’s health. This includes the study of how children’s surroundings affect their nutrition.
Lawson Health Research Institute is ranked eighth in the country according to the 2016 edition of “Canada’s Top 40 Research Hospitals List” by Research Infosource. This strong position has been maintained by Lawson for the past three years.
Dr. David Hill, Lawson Scientific Director, is pleased with the results.
Scientists from Children’s Health Research Institute, a program of Lawson Health Research Institute, and Western University have developed a new blood test that identifies with greater than 90 per cent certainty whether or not an adolescent athlete has suffered a concussion.
