Sydney debut for survivorship conference a sell-out success, Indigenous health expert joins SALHN board, and extended Flinders community comes together to explore underwater archaeology.
Underwater archaeology a swimming success
The Unesco Unitwin Network for Maritime Archaeology Book Launch was a fabulous event, attracting a strong contingent of Flinders staff, students and interested members of the community keen to understand the work of the group.
Survivorship Conference Sydney debut
The 4th Flinders COSA Survivorship Conference was held over 28-29 March in Sydney, the first time the event was held outside of Adelaide. A multidisciplinary audience of clinicians, researchers and consumers explored some of the most challenging issues that people experience after a cancer diagnosis.
With registrations sold out and the highest number of papers submitted yet, the event is growing from strength to strength – with high expectations for the next meeting in March 2021.
