What are Information and Support days?

Facilitated by our Programs Manager, you’ll hear from 2 panels of experts who will provide evidence-based information relevant to our high risk for cancer community. There will be pre-submitted questions and an opportunity for participants to ask questions of the panel. 

About our Information and Support Days 

This event will include 2 panel discussions and a social activity: 

  • Panel 1 is focused on genetics, screening and mental health 
  • Panel 2 is focused on risk reduction options (surgical and medication), menopause and IVF/PGD. 
  • Social activity - Fashion style session with The Style Profile’s Larissa  

You'll hear from genetic counsellors, a psychologist, menopause specialist, gynaecologist, breast surgeon and you'll learn about how Pink Hope supports the high-risk for cancer community. You’ll also hear community members share their personal story. 

During the morning (between 9:15am – 12:15pm) you’ll hear from our panelists and then after lunch you'll have the opportunity to enjoy learning from local stylist Larissa as she talks you through fashion tips and tricks. You are welcome to bring family, friends or a support person. It is fine for you to only attend the parts of the event that are relevant for you.  

If you are under financial pressure, please contact Lisa to see how we can best support you to attend.
