2023 FAmily & Adult Meeting

24 - 26 March 2023

FASA’s FAmily and Adult meeting is a regular event that allows families affected by Fanconi Anaemia (FA) to connect with other families. We will also meet with and hear from researchers and clinical experts who are active in the research and treatment of FA.

The 2023 FAmily & Adult Meeting is scheduled for Friday 24th to Sunday 26th March



What's happening?

Friday 24th March

The first day will be held at the St Vincent Institute in Melbourne on Friday, where families can be informed of the latest developments in research, treatment and living with FA.

Families are invited to share their experiences for the benefit of others to assist in preparing, planning, and coping with some of the hurdles living with FA brings.

Among our number are adults also living with FA that share the unique perspective of growing up with the disease and the challenges they have faced, and more importantly the hope gained from their personal achievements.

FREE group accommodation is provided at Urban Camp. 

Urban Camp is a complex in the heart of Melbourne with comfortable but basic facilities, very popular with visiting school groups. We’ll be using family rooms with bunk beds – BYO sleeping bags.

FASA has organised free group accommodation at Urban Camp for Friday and Saturday night. We are currently looking at options for attendees arriving on Thursday.

The FAmily & Adult meeting, accommodation at Urban Camp and select meals are provided by FASA free of charge. Families may have to pay for one or two meals and extra activities. Families are expected to arrange their own travel to and from Melbourne, but FASA is hoping to subsidise this for those member FAmilies travelling from further afield.
