AYA Key Workers Face to Face Workshop 2022

After nearly 3-years of Covid restrictions, the AYA Key Workers and AYA Cancer Network teams were finally reunited kanohi ki te kanohi for what was an amazing 2-day workshop.

This was a time to really ask the question… “what does the future of AYA cancer care look like?” Lots of ideas were shared. A refreshing couple of days re-establishing that whakawhanaunga!
