A new bunch of Community Liaisons join the army
BCNA held the first Community Liaison training for women from rural/regional areas last week. 16 women from across Australia came together in Melbourne for two days to learn more about BCNA and how they can help raise awareness in their communities of the impact of breast cancer and our free resources.
When you bring together a bunch of motivated women who are prepared to be open and share their experiences with the view of making a difference in their community, it's not surprising that many new friendships are formed - this is one of the beautiful and powerful things about being a part of our Network. Personally, I feel so privileged to get to know all these amazing women more and to have provided the catalyst for these relationships to form.
At the end of the training each new Community Liaison had an Action Plan to take back to their community - people they are going to speak to and activities to plan to help spread the word of BCNA.
From here we look forward to hearing their stories and learning from their experiences together, because it's a relationship where we work to support each other.
Thanks again to all the women who participated. If you would like to know more about BCNA's Community Liaison program check out the Get Involved page of our website.
