ECCQ held a World Hepatitis Day Forum in Toowoomba on Saturday 27 July

The event was a great success with about 50 people attending from various multicultural communities.

The event gave detailed and accessible insights regarding awareness building, prevention and treatment for Hepatitis A, B and C. Our guests shared with us that they enjoyed the event and found the information provided very important and useful for their communities.

We had a number of speakers, with active Congolese Community member Israel Paluku as MC and ECCQ Acting CEO Trish Golledge providing the welcome speech. Nurse Peta from Kobi House in Toowoomba talked about hepatitis C and the services available at Kobi House.

Christine from ECCQ Bi-lingual Community Health Worker told a powerful and insightful story, and Community Management and Treatment Coordinator Marrianne provided an overview of viral hepatitis. There were quiz questions with prizes and great engagement from attendees.

Childcare and a pizza lunch were provided, and all attendees received information bags.
