Genetic Information Seminars
A range of seminars aiming to inform individuals and families about information, support services and the latest updates regarding particular conditions
GA organises information seminars for a number of genetic conditions. These seminars aim to provide information updates on that particular condition. This includes but is not limited to research opportunities, medical updates, support services available, symptom alleviation/treatment progresses.
Typically, presentations are provided by medical professionals, geneticists, genetic counsellors and support services. There are opportunities to ask questions and talk to the presenters during breaks. The seminars normally run for the whole day, with refreshers provided. There is no cost to attend.
It is also a chance for people to meet others with the same condition, to share stories and experiences, and to reduce the isolation.
The seminars are a chance for individuals, families and carers to ask questions from health professionals and service providers in a comfortable, non-non-threatening and non-medical environment.
