Julie Leung is currently undertaking her PhD within the QUT Improving Health Outcomes for People research group. Julie is a nutritionist, western herbalist and qualified sport orienteering coach.
Her research interests relate to quality of life in women with benign and malignant gynaecological diseases. Julie hopes her findings will understand the multifaceted and disruptive experiences of women within the first year following diagnosis. Julie hopes to highlight the need for interventions that support women to both successfully manage the experience of cancer diagnosis and treatments and equip themselves with the necessary techniques to negotiate transitions towards the future.
