Thank you for ‘embracing’ body image research

Posted 25 Mar 2024
Flinders Foundation has partnered with The Embrace Collective, led by renowned Australian of the Year 2023, Taryn Brumfitt, to support critical body image research in Flinders University’s Embrace Impact Lab.

Overseen by body image researcher Associate Professor Ivanka Prichard, the Lab is dedicated to empowering young Australians to embrace body appreciation. Generous support is funding a research assistant position, taken up by Dr Jamie-Lee Pennesi, to gather and assess data around the impact the EMBRACE KIDS film has on body image, mental health and overall wellbeing in Years 7 and 8 students.

Support for this type of intervention and prevention research provides us with a wonderful opportunity to be able to shape the lives of young people and to improve physical and mental outcomes in the community.
