Building Healthy Rural and Regional Communities for Tomorrow

The Garvan Institute of Medical Research wishes to thank Ridley Corporation for supporting the health and well-being of rural and regional Australia.

Since 2013, Garvan and Ridley have worked together to present the Healthy Families, Healthy Communities Education and Awareness Program. This series of free public forums has helped demystify cancer as a disease by providing updated on the latest in research, suggesting practical ways to reduce individual cancer risk, and the best ways to access local resources and cancer support.

We will be back on the road visiting local communities in 2015 addressing other important issues such as diabetes and obesity, diseases of the brain, and how we can support healthy ageing.
