Bio/Research

Jessica Wegener is a registered dietitian and Assistant Professor in the School of Nutrition at Ryerson. Dr. Wegener obtained her PhD from the School of Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo where her research examined multi-sectoral perspectives on the initiation, development and adoption of a series of innovative land use planning policies to facilitate access to healthy, local food in Waterloo Region (Ontario, Canada).

Through a New Researcher Grant from the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research (CFDR), Dr. Wegener’s research highlights 'what works' with respect to regional food system policy making and points to the potential for coordinated and collaborative action between regional and municipal governments and their partners as a strategy to promote healthier, more food secure communities.

As a registered dietitian and public health researcher, Dr. Wegener is interested in how governments and communities organize to address food-related issues and plans to continue to explore the role of policy and environmental changes in creating more supportive food and nutrition environments.
