Liverpool Plains International Women’s Night

Friday 12th March | 7:30 pm

A free catered event to celebrate International Women’s Day–a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women–through the #ChooseToChallenge 2021 campaign and also promote gender equality and women’s rights with guest speakers local and out of the region.

Keynote Speaker confirmed for the evening include:

Dr Yvonne McMaster OAM – Palliative Care Specialist

Since retirement in 1997, Yvonne McMaster OAM has co-led a support group for people with advanced cancer at the Sydney Adventist Hospital. Seeing how poorly they were served by palliative care services in 2011, Yvonne learned that the funding had been cut for local palliative care services. This led to a petition to the NSW Government with 24,000 signatures and the restoration of the funding by the new Coalition Government in NSW.

Pam Tanner – Local Grandmother, mother of two, wife & working woman.

Since NSW Government has started improving funding and services but these improvements are nowhere near enough to provide adequate palliative care to all residents of NSW.

Much still remains to be done. More specialist PC doctors, nurses and allied health are needed all over NSW and for community, acute hospitals and aged care facilities.

 
Other guest speakers will be announced closer to the event.

Doors open: 7pm | Event at 7:30pm
