International Pathology Day and you!

This year, International Pathology Day (IPD) took place on 13 November. This is an initiative launched by the RCPA in 2012 to raise awareness of pathology in the community. To celebrate, the College hosted an event at their headquarters in Surry Hills, with a focus on human papilloma virus (HPV)-related head and neck cancer. The event was attended by guest patients Julie McCrossin AM, TV presenter and media personality and Archibald prize-winning artist Nicholas Harding who shared their personal stories with the disease.

During the event, anatomical pathologist, A/Prof Ruta Gupta, staff specialist in the Department of Tissue Pathology and Diagnostic Oncology, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, and Prof Jonathan Clark AM, head and neck surgeon and Director of Head and Neck Research at the Sydney Head and Neck Cancer Institute at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, shared their professional insights into the disease. National medical reporter for the ABC, Sophie Scott, returned for a third year to lead the event’s discussions.

Thank you who got involved and made International Pathology Day 2019 a great success!
