Flinders University are leading the way in workplace wellbeing and last week hosted our Workplace Prevention Program.

Our Founder & CEO, Nick Lee spoke to employees about bowel cancer prevention, encouraging them to be proactive about their health. Through the Workplace Prevention Program, Flinders University provided interested employees with a simple screening test to complete in the privacy of their home.

Over 400 staff members attended or tuned in online to one of the five sessions that took place across the University’s campuses.

Flinders University have a long association with bowel screening. Professor Graeme Young was instrumental in the development of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program, which is attributed with saving thousands of lives. We have been privileged to work with Professor Young on a number of projects over the years. He is also a member of our Medical Advisory Committee.

Vice Chancellor, Colin Stirling and Senior Policy Advisor, Anthony Bak sponsored the program and we commend them on their commitment to encouraging employees to attend the sessions and complete the screening test.
