About the WebinarMoving on from the whirlwind of medical appointments and regular contact with your treatment team can feel like a sudden change of pace. It can also raise a lot of new questions and concerns. Join us for a free online webcast where we will be discussing coming to the end of breast cancer treatment, what to expect, follow-up care, looking after yourself and how to manage challenges that present after hospital-based treatment ends. Participants will hear from Dr Belinda Yeo, Medical Oncologist and Clinical Scientist and Corella Hoogendoorn, breast cancer survivor and have the opportunity to ask questions online.

Highly regarded for her passion and focus on Australian women and men who have been affected by breast cancer, she is committed to giving everyone a voice and reducing the disparity of care across the country.

Dr Belinda Yeo jointly appointed to Austin Health as a Medical Oncologist and to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute as a Clinician Scientist with a specific interest in breast cancer. Dr Yeo is a very passionate clinician who thoroughly enjoys looking after patients with breast cancer.
Her translational research has focused on trying to find better ways to estimate recurrence risk in patients diagnosed with oestrogen-receptor positive early breast cancer, with the ultimate aim to better personalize therapies for those patients who have the most to gain from them.
