Lauren presented her work on the weight gain of children during treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Lauren conducted a retrospective audit of medical records and found many children experience weight gain during treatment that, in some cases, is maintained even 7 years after treatment completion. She discussed her plans to develop a healthy eating intervention, called Reboot, to help children establish and maintain good eating habits during and beyond treatment. She is currently preparing a manuscript for publication with her supervisors Jennifer Cohen, A/Prof Claire Wakefield, and Prof Richard Cohn.
