QUALITY Study - QUebec Adipose and Lifestyle InvesTigation in Youth

This study involves a cohort of 633 children and both biological parents with at least one of the parents suffering from obesity. The children, who were 8 to 10 years old at the time of recruitment, will be monitored until the age of 18. The research project examines the following:

  • Natural history and determinants of cardiometabolic risk factors
  • Impact of built environment on cardiometabolic risk factors
  • Dental health and cardiovascular risk
  • Stress and metabolic syndrome

Findings from the QUALITY study will lead to a deeper understanding of the biological, genetic, behavioral, psychosocial and environmental determinants of cardiometabolic risk factors in children, which in turn will lead to the development of more relevant and effective prevention and treatment programs.
