This event has been supported by the Flinders Community for the last 13 years, and this year we welcome a Shoreham local, Associate Professor Heather Thorne AM as our Guest Speaker. With a background in laboratory research in the molecular genetics of breast cancer, Heather was appointed in 1997 as the first national manager of the cohort known as kConFab, the Australasian research consortium for families at high risk of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer (www.kconfab.org).
This foundation brings together over 300 healthcare professionals around Australia and New Zealand, including clinical geneticists, breast surgeons, oncologists, psychosocial researchers, scientists, and community representatives. These professionals all work as one to find better health outcomes for families at high risk of breast, ovarian, and prostate cancer.
