    Advocacy presentations

    As a program, ChIPS tries to inform the community about the impact that chronic illness has on young people's lives. Many of our young people have made presentations within the hospital and outside in the wider community. They often share their inspiring stories of living with a chronic illness, talk about their experiences of the ChIPS Program, or give an outline of the Program structure, history and referral process.

    If you would like more information or to book one of these presentations please contact Meagan Hunt, ChIPS Program Manager.
