There have been a number of sector engagement activities undertaken by the Foundation since the beginning of the year.

In April, Dr Alberto Furlan and Dr Squirrel Main were delighted to visit the Karinya Young Women’s Service in Tasmania to hear about Karinya’s successful Young Mums ‘n’ Bubs (KYM) program.
