Laura Morris, 2017

“During my time in PERL I was particularly interested in learning more about how children physiologically respond to altitude. I was inspired to continue down a health-related path and have since trained as a therapeutic radiographer, working back home in the UK. It would be a dream to specialize in paediatric radiotherapy in the future.”
