Attending forums

We send representatives of our group to lots of forums and conferences that are concerned with men’s health. That way we can build up and maintain a network of people who have an interest in prostate health and prostate cancer. We can also keep up to date in relation to new approaches and procedures relating to detection and treatment of prostate cancer and provision of support to people who have had prostate cancer.

For instance, members of our Group attended the 19-20 March 2011 AGM of the Support Groups in NSW and the ACT that are affiliated with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. This was very informative because it provided an opportunity to learn about the activities of many support groups and to listen to presentations from medical professionals.

Here are some pics taken at such presentations. Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version of the pic:
