Congratulations, Maryam!

It’s my great pleasure to share news that Maryam Kebbe (PhD Candidate, Dept of Pediatrics, UAlberta) successfully defended her thesis this afternoon!

Over the past few years, Maryam completed several studies related to obesity in adolescents, which led to the development of a practical resource (Conversation Cards for Adolescents) for health care professionals to use when talking with teens about healthy lifestyle habits. Her dissertation is a great example of how research (conducted in partnership with teens) can be used to create evidence-based resources that help front-line health care professionals address obesity in their day-to-day practices.

Way to go, Maryam!
