Event Details

SWAN2019 is the inaugural conference for SWAN Australia (SWAN), a not for profit organisation and peak body supporting families who have a child with an undiagnosed or rare genetic condition.

SWAN2019 will bring together a range of experts to provide knowledge and understanding of genetics and genomics to those where the condition of their child is unknown. Living with the unknown is challenging and can often be isolating. SWAN2019 invites SWAN parents, carers, extended family, friends and other rare genetic peer support groups to come together and learn more about genetics and genomics.

Join us on Saturday 19 October 2019 for this very special event. If you cannot make it in person, please join us via Zoom Meetings.

We are pleased to be able to offer SWAN2019 at no cost thanks to our major sponsor, Illumina and hosts, MCRI.

Our Conference Program includes: 
Professor David Amor - An Understanding of Genetics|
Associate Professor Sue White - A Day in the Life of a Geneticist
Jane Tiller - Ethics, Data and Insurance
