An event where we educate, support and empower

What are education days?

Facilitated by our Programs Manager, you’ll hear from 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. We’ll start with dinner from 6 – 7pm, then have the Information session for 2 hours between 7 – 9pm. 

About our Education Days 

Hear from experts as we discuss menopause and the impacts of an early menopause, how to manage symptoms, the mental health aspects of being high-risk for cancer, liifestyle factors that affect cancer risk and much more. You'll hear from menopause expert Professor Martha Hickey, psychiatrist Dr Olivia Wong, and alcohol mindset coach Kathryn Ellion and you'll learn about how Pink Hope supports the high-risk for cancer community.  

These events are more relaxed than the larger events we’ve held in the past. You'll have the opportunity to socialise and network with other community members before our Information session. You are welcome to bring family, friends or a support person.  

And of course, we'll have one of our passionate community members share their personal story.
