The inaugural Hemispherectomy Foundation Australia Family Conference was held 10-11 March 2017 at the Royal Pines Resort, Gold Coast, Queensland. The conference was a tremendous success with over 90 hemispherectomy family and friends attending to listen to a range of information sessions provided by medical and allied health professionals. Sessions on the National Disability Insurance Scheme and family resilience were also rated very highly by participants. Most importantly, the conference was an unprecedented opportunity for Australian hemispherectomy families to meet, share information and make bonds and friendships that we hope will continue for a very long time.
Will will shortly be providing audios of the conference sessions along with a range of session summary factsheets. In the meantime, please view this beautiful tribute to our gorgeous hemi children, siblings and families. Thank you to Karley Miller for the production.
