Title: Understanding and influencing dietary changes in women following treatment for breast cancer
Aim: Breast cancer survivorship is associated with elevated risk of cancer recurrence and mortality, weight gain, and co-morbid chronic disease. Dietary change has been shown to reduce the incidence of these risks. Caroline will investigate the dietary changes breast cancer survivors make in the context of both weight loss and physical activity interventions using quantitative and qualitative methods.
