Cancer Wellness Program

This free education and support program is for cancer survivors who have completed active treatment; it is also for carers, partners and family members. It can help you, and those around you, to develop practical strategies for managing life now and moving beyond recovery to wellness. The program is run in partnership with the Cancer Council Victoria.

As well as interactive sessions from health professionals you will have the opportunity to share with others going through a similar experience. Lunch and refreshments are provided.

2020 dates:

  • Friday, 23 October 2020
