LiverWELL champions the interests of people affected by or at risk of viral hepatitis and liver disease. As a health promotion agency, we believe it is important to involve and hear the voices of people with lived experiences of viral hepatitis and/or liver disease.
LiverWELL has a bureau of Lived Experience Speakers, who are a vital element of our education and information sessions. Presentations can be requested on a variety of topics that include treatment, stigma and discrimination, healthy lifestyles, and living with a chronic liver condition. The personal stories of Hep speakers assist in dispelling myths and highlighting the stigma that can be faced in medical settings by the general public.
Lived Experience Speakers receive training and are supported to develop and tell their stories to a range of audiences.
We are currently looking to recruit additional speakers to our Lived Experience Speaker team. If you are interested or know someone who may be interested, please contact Fiona Still at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 03 9274 9755
