Leigh Vanderloo


Having received her PhD in Health Promotion from the University of Western Ontario in 2016, Dr. Vanderloo’s area of research focuses on the objective measurement of young children’s physical activity levels and sedentary time. Her research interests also extend to the impact of the outdoor environment on young children’s activity behaviours. Dr. Vanderloo has published some of the first national and international papers examining the variability in young children’s activity levels across various early learning environments as well as exploring approaches for improving objective measurement in this population. Currently, Dr. Vanderloo is working as the Knowledge Translation Manager at ParticipACTION and is also a Research Fellow at SickKids Hospital in Toronto, where her research examines the association between physical activity and sedentary time with cardiometabolic risk in young children.
