Past Event

LiverWELL Regional Forum – Albury Wodonga

Event date

The LiverWELL Regional Forum in Albury Wodonga aims to build health workers’ understanding of liver health and viral hepatitis, along with local perspectives and referral pathways to better support the community. This event will also provide opportunities to network and to discuss strengths and barriers around access, information and service delivery.

LiverWELL’s aim for this free workforce event is to understand the local needs and strengths, and to provide a space for information sharing and collaboration. We welcome your discussions, involvement and engagement in making long-lasting impacts to service delivery and supporting those living with or at risk of hepatitis B, hepatitis C and liver disease. We would love to support all health and community workers in Albury and Wodonga (and surrounding areas) in continuing work towards Australia’s 2030 viral hepatitis elimination targets.
