Between 2010 - 2020 Jenny was a researcher at The University of Queensland’s School of Public Health with the Cancer Prevention Research Centre conducting and evaluating broad reach, remotely delivered lifestyle interventions (e.g. delivered via telephone and text messages) to achieve and maintain weight loss and behaviour change in adults with complex chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes and cancer.
