Past Presentations

Date Monday 9 August 2021
Topic: KTP facilitated projects in PNG (Healthy communities (including Covid-19 vaccine response); Project Airbourne; Kick's 4 Kokoda; Light 4 Life.
Presenter: Kate Donnellan, Health Programs Manager, Kokoda Track Foundation

Date: Monday 12 April 2021
Topic: Possum Playgroup
Presenter: Jill Martin, Newborn Family Support Team, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney.

A significant part of my role within that team is in supporting vulnerable families, particularly those with substance use in pregnancy. In 2016 we started the Possum Playgroup to address the loss to follow-up of a significant proportion of these families. It is a “one stop shop’ for families involved in the drugs in pregnancy program, that provides access to a wide range of services and supports on a small budget. The group has been suspended during COVID, but we are working on safe ways to re-open – hopefully soon.
