More 2016 Events

Melanoma Seminar  

Australia has the dubious honour of having the highest rates of melanoma skin cancer. Whilst typically affecting fair-skinned people, simply living in this sunburnt country is in itself a risk, and nobody is immune.  Attendees were updated on the latest diagnostic and treatment options. Importantly,  together with cutting edge surgical techniques, the advent of immunotherapy will potentially change the response rate survival in melanoma patients. This evening brought together an expert panel covering medical oncology, surgical oncology, and consumer representation. 

Diabetes Update 

Another huge problem affecting nearly 2  million Australians is diabetes. With rising rate of obesity hand-in-hand, Type II diabetes has muscled its way into the nation’s top health priorities. However, treatment options are also increasing in number and complexity. Attendees were led through a concise but comprehensive presentation of diabetes management by Dr Georgia Soldatos, consultant endocrinologist. This talk will be followed up by a further update in 2017, in conjunction with a session on andrology. Please see the website main page for updates. 

Mental Health and Wellbeing – September 2016 

Held jointly with the Chinese Business and Professional Association, this evening was headed by psychiatrist (and ACMAV member) A/Prof Michael Wong and Ms Rebecca Hallam, exercise physiologist. All too often, busy professionals work at the expense of their own health. This session was a new initiative to emphasise the importance of work-life balance and regular exercise – far easier said than done. The aim is to hold future sessions addressing other key areas of preventative medicine, in conjunction with other professional organisations. 


ACMAV is proudly supported by Bank of Melbourne to deliver its educational, social, and health-promotion programs.
