Dr Gemma Sharp appears on ABC Radio National Life Matters program discussing new body image research in teenagers

Our NHMRC Early Career Senior Research Fellow and Leader of the Body Image Research Group, Dr Gemma Sharp, was interviewed on ABC Radio National Life Matters program on 16/07/2020 discussing her latest research in genital body image in teenage girls. She and her team have developed a 2 minute video which they have shown is very effective in reducing genital concerns in older teenagers and now they are testing the video in girls aged 13-15 years which is when these concerns most often start.
