Event description


Dr. Meghan Azad holds a Canada Research Chair in Developmental Origins of Chronic Disease. She is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Child Health at the University of Manitoba, where she co-leads the Manitoba site of the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD) Study (, a national pregnancy cohort following 3500 children to understand how early life experiences shape lifelong health. Within the CHILD cohort, Dr. Azad discovered a link between prenatal exposure to non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS) and infant obesity. A recent meta-analysis led by Dr. Azad identified major knowledge gaps regarding the long-term cardiometabolic effects of NNS consumption, garnering worldwide attention including over 1200 international media reports. Dr. Azad’s research is funded by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, Research Manitoba, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
