WIN has over 100 members within just a few weeks of opening membership. We are happy to share that the very first WIN New Members Meeting held on 13th September 2019 was successful. Over 40 members got together at Westmead Public Hospital.
Members first attended a talk by Dr Arya Sharma, who spoke about his experience in trying to help drive change around obesity in Canada and globally.
This was followed by a WIN workshop. Members broke out into three groups to brainstorm and discuss:
1) Advocacy priorities for WIN
2) How WIN members will stay connected and engaged
3) What personal stories of lived experience would we like to share
Attached is the WIN presentation as well as the topics discussed and outcomes workshopped by participants.
The link below contains the podcast to Dr Arya Sharma’s talk.
We would like to thank the University of Sydney Westmead team for use of facilities and this video recording.
Do email or contact us on Facebook with further ideas, or if you would like to tell your story.
We look forward to connecting with you in future events. Look out for an announcement for a WIN Webinar coming soon.
Thanks and regards,
The WIN team
