VIDEO: Dietary Supplements for Muscle-Building and Weight Loss: Addressing Knowledge and Policy GapsCategories: Kyle Ganson, Research
Presented by Kyle T. Ganson, PhD, MSW and Eliana Sinicropi, MPPc, this webinar provided updated research on the use of muscle-building and weight loss dietary supplements among Canadian adolescents and young adults, as well as known adverse effects associated with use.
Information on the current public policy related to dietary supplements in Canada was also discussed, including the gaps that put young people at risk. Recommendations based on prior research and other jurisdictions were outlined to address these gaps.
This webinar was co-sponsored by the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and the National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC). This policy analysis and webinar were funded by The Richard B. Applied Social Policy and Social Innovation Fund (#307646)
