Women's Brain Health Initiative
Research shows 70% of future Alzheimer's sufferers will be women. For every man that endures Alzheimer's, depression or stroke, two women will be inflicted with the same conditions. Despite these alarming facts and incident rates, no studies are currently being undertaken to explore and understand this gender specific disease information.

University of Toronto – Dr. Deborah O'Connor Research Initiative
Nutrition is important at every age – it helps foster growth, development and learning, and also prevents illness and disease.
L'il Critters™ believes in investing in the health and future of Canadian youth. Understanding the importance of research that will impact and improve children's nutrition, we have partnered with the University of Toronto's, Department of Nutritional Sciences. L'il Critters™ is honoured to support lead scientist, Dr. Deborah O'Connor's important research investigating how well very preterm infants adhere to expert human milk feeding and vitamin and mineral supplementation recommendations after hospital discharge. Dr. O'Connor is also examining factors associated with adherence to feeding and supplement recommendations in this vulnerable population and is exploring opportunities to improve their health after discharge through nutrition.
