There has never been a time more so than now to try to keep everyone safe and informed, with the ever changing challenges that we are faced with due to COVID-19. Therefore, we have invited Dr Katie Allen MP to join Think Pink via Zoom next Thursday 6th August 2020 from 2.30pm to 3.30pm for a Q & A session with Andrea Cannon, Think Pink Breast Care Nurse.
In February this year, Think Pink was delighted that Dr Katie Allen, Federal member for Higgins officially opened the new Think Pink Living Centre at 81A South Wharf Drive in Docklands. Unfortunately, not long after opening, Think Pink was forced to suspend all onsite operations on Monday 16 March 2020 as a result of the Victorian State of Emergency due to COVID-19 and very quickly transferred the majority of its programmes and services onto the Zoom platform.
During this time, many clients have reengaged with Think Pink, with regional clients once again being able to participate and benefit from the comfort and safety of their own home, despite the physical distance from Think Pink.
Think Pink hopes that this session will clarify and answer the many questions you may have regarding COVID-19. Please register to attend below and submit any questions you may want addressed by Wednesday 5/8/20.
