The Centre welcomes Mrs Jessica Fruin who is generously volunteering her time to the Centre on Tuesdays to undertake some research, to develop some further skills in this area.
Jessica brings a lot of relevant expertise to the Centre. She has a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics and a Masters of Business Administration. Since 2010 she has worked as the Food Policy Stakeholder Engagement Officer and Secretariat Officer for the Australian Government Department of Health. She is currently on maternity leave from that position. Prior to that, Jessica was the Contract Manager for the Divisions of General Practice Program for the Australian Government Department of Health.
Jessica is working with Dr Zumin Shi and Dr Andrew Vincent in the Centre to analyse the diet data that was obtained from the GIRTH study, a 12 week male targeted community group based lifestyle modification program.
