 Compounding Nutrition and Oncolcgy (CNO) SIG meeting

Compounding, Nutrition and Oncology Foundation Day and Symposium 17 and 18 Sept : CANCELLED

Due to the current Covid situation and uncertainty about the length of the lockdown, the decision has been taken to cancel the upcoming CNO SIG Foundation Day and Symposium. This is obviously disappointing but is the most appropriate step in the circumstances.  The NZHPA Executive would like to formally thank and recognise the work done by Cath Oliver and the team, in developing what would have been another high quality event.  Organisers are looking at what alternative options might be available for the CNO Foundation Day so watch this space for further updates. 


The CNO SIG is planning to hold their AGM and Planning meeting by Zoom on Saturday 25 September from to 11.30 a.m.

Please contact Maxine or Cath if you would like to add any items to the agenda.
