Immunotherapy is a treatment that uses certain parts of a person's immune system to fight cancer. Immunotherapies are thought to work by slowing the growth and spread of cancer cells, and by helping the immune system destroy existing cancer cells.

There have been a few changes to the Immune Therapies and Cancer session at Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre.

The session time has changed. The presentation will now run from 2pm until 3.15pm. Participants are still welcome to come at 1.30pm. Teas, coffee and snacks will be available before the session and you can chat with Counterpart volunteers.

The presenter Jonathon Cebon has unfortunately had to cancel and we have a new presenter. Belinda Yeo will speak on the same topic 'Immune Therapies and Cancer'. Belinda is a consultant Medical Oncologist jointly appointed to the Austin Hospital as a Medical Oncologist and to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute as a Clinician Scientist.

We apologize and hope these changes do not inconvenience you greatly.

Counterpart is partnering with Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre to host this session.

This event has past.
