Hunter Cancer Research Alliance (HCRA) are hosting a Community Showcase event on Wednesday 18 July 2018. This event is an opportunity for HCRA research members to showcase their research to a community audience through oral and poster presentations and receive valuable consumer feedback.
The aim of this showcase will be to:
- Allow our researchers to gain experiencing talking about their research to a community audience.
- Give community members the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback for our researchers to consider and inform the future development of the cancer research projects.
- Begin to establish connections and working relationships between our HCRA research membership and community members.
