Community Conversations about Cancer
Community Conversations are volunteer-led events of 6 to 50 people or more, where participants share their thoughts, experiences and ideas about cancer and cancer control. You don't need to be an expert to participate. The strength of these conversations is the breadth and depth of response we get from everyone touched by cancer, personally or professionally. These conversations are also an important delivery channel for awareness, education and action in the community.
See flyer for more information.

"Exposure to radiation – it’s not all bad news" - an informative public seminar by CVSA and presented by RAH Medical Physicists - (date to be confirmed).
