[UCRH] Social Connections Breakfast


Our next breakfast is happening on Thursday 19th October and we’d love for you to join us at the [UCRH] University Centre for Rural Health - Lismore.

The [UCRH] Social Connections Breakfast intends to foster conversation, networking and learning about a variety of community services and topics.

We are very excited to welcome Roy Starkey from ACON - Northern Rivers, in conversation with Alex Grantham discussing ‘From Stigma to Acceptance – Working effectively with the LGBTIQ community’. Roy is a valued member of our community and is retiring at the end of this year. His wealth of working knowledge and advocacy for people living with HIV in regional areas will make this breakfast one not to miss!

Roy has been a strong advocate for the LGBTIQ community in the areas of HIV prevention and support and the LBTIQ ageing population. Roy is retiring at the end of this year so please come along and help us in wishing him well on his future journey.
