Veugelers started his academic career in 1998 studying the health behaviours of Canadian children and their impact on chronic diseases. Over the years, his research portfolio broadened to include social determinants of health, school programs and policies, and specifically Comprehensive School Health (CSH), in relation to chronic diseases, mental wellbeing and educational outcomes. In 2007 he initiated APPLE Schools, a CSH program in socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods and communities. To date, his research is recognized in more than 250 peer reviewed publications, over 80 successful grants and contracts (securing over $27 million as a PI), and various career awards covering 27 years of salary support.
