Our Mob and Cancer Expert Reference Group

Cancer Australia extends our gratitude to the Chair and members of the Expert Reference Group for their invaluable contribution to the development of Our Mob and Cancer.

To support co-design of Our Mob and Cancer from its earliest development, Cancer Australia brought together an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Expert Reference Group to provide expert advice and guidance on all stages of the website development and release.

Members of the Expert Reference Group included Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cancer consumers and communications professionals, clinicians working in Aboriginal health care, representatives from Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research Groups.
