By Events

Jasper Hotel, Melbourne

This conference on Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease (CJD) and other prion disease is for CJD family members, people at increased risk of developing CJD and health care professionals involved in patient care or infection prevention and control.

For CJD family members this is an opportunity to meet other families, share your stories and gain knowledge so that you can promote awareness in the community and amongst local health care professionals. We also welcome genetic family members or any families wanting more information on genetic testing to register for the genetic meeting on Friday 13th November. This conference is free for CJD families and friends.
