How can we Close The Gap in cancer?

In this webinar Professor Tom Calma AO, National Coordinator Tackling Indigenous Smoking & Member, Cancer Australia’s Leadership Group on Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control is interviewed by broadcaster and cancer survivor, Julie McCrossin. We hear about the activities which have cut the rates of smoking & saved lives. We learn why the rates of certain cancers will increase before the gap begins to close.

This webinar series is hosted by SAHMRI and the Australian Bragg Centre for Proton Therapy and Research.

The Australian Bragg Centre for Proton Therapy and Research is a highly anticipated centre that will deliver technologically advanced precision radiotherapy, providing treatment to children, adolescents and adults.
