Diabetes 360: Season 7, Episode 4
Research has shown that children who have obesity in puberty are at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Scientists like Dr. Vincent Poitout are hoping to learn why this happens and ways we can prevent it. His work in this area was recently funded by Diabetes Canada and CIHR.
Dr. Poitout is the director of research at the University of Montreal Health Centre and a professor at the University of Montreal.
