Comments from past Avon Travel Grant recipients
"My primary takehome from the ANZBCTG conference is an escalation of my passion for my job as a Study Coordinator. We work daily with the intricacies of running trials. These conferences allow me to reconnect with the big picture and to glimpse the exciting directions of future studies."
— Anne Morcombe
"Attendance at the ANZBCTG annual conference was highly beneficial to both myself and to the department, as I was able to learn about new diagnostic procedures, breast cancer management and treatment, and about new ANZBCTG trials in which our department could participate."
— Claire Haworth
"I have and would, highly recommend this conference to my colleagues and peers to attend. It was one of the best Breast conferences I have attended and tailored to all participants from oncologists, nursing, clinical trials, research and data managers. I am hopeful to attend again next year and I have encouraged our clinical trials and research staff to attend as well."
— Kylie Museth
"All sessions identified issues incurred during the daily management of running clinical trials and were of great benefit. Hearing first hand of new updates which will further education and help in all aspects of clinical trials, gaining new knowledge and assimilating this information, is all part of our growth in contributing to the management of running successful clinical trials. Thank you Avon!"
