Anne Gilsing is a nutritional epidemiologist with the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). She examines the role of nutrition in aging and obesity. Anne is interested in the controversy that exists around the definition of obesity in older people, called the "the obesity paradox" or the harm of being overweight in older age. She is also interested in the need for obesity treatment in older adults. At the CLSA, Anne is helping to define age-appropriate BMI cut points that optimally reflect the health risks associated with obesity in older adults, as well as examining how menopause impacts mental health and well-being.
