Audrey Lamb Community Forum Keynote Speakers

Audrey Lamb Community Forum Keynote Speakers

The Audrey Lamb Community Forum is a yearly keynote address on viral hepatitis issues and trends regarding testing, treatment, prevention, stigma, and more.

The Forum – precedes the Hepatitis NSW Annual General Meeting – is named after Audrey Lamb, OAM, who was a co-founder of the Hepatitis C Council of NSW (now Hepatitis NSW). Sadly, she passed away in 2008 following a short and very intense battle with cancer. We honour Audrey through this Community Forum and the delivery of an annual keynote address by a leading community member.
