Guyana Cancer Foundation was legally registered as a Non-Profit Organization on the 1st June 2016 and started our screening program by offering free Mammogram + Sonogram to 100 plus underinsured, and low-income women. January 2017, we launched Cervical Cancer Awareness Month where we screened 250 women by offering free pap smears. We have also launched free Prostate Cancer Screening in September 2018 and was able to screen over 100 men.
The Human Genetics Society of Australasia was formed in 1977 to provide a forum for the various disciplines collected under the title of Human Genetics.
The HGSA is a full member of the International Federation of Human Genetics Societies and domestically we work closely with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia as well as other groups through the Pathology Associations Council.
The Society holds an Annual Scientific Meeting each year with visiting international and national speakers. All members of the Society are encouraged to present original work in the form of oral and poster presentations.
The majority of members hold both qualifications and are employed in a position relevant to Human Genetics.
