This session will give you a run-down on what palbociclib is, how it works and who for; where it sits among treatments for advanced ER+ breast cancer; opportunities in NZ for clinical trials and compassionate access to palbociclib; paying privately, and discussing palbociclib with your oncologist

Community Education – Is one of the benefits of ‘community education classes’ helping overcome loneliness and isolation?
One of the discussion points Let’s Learn’s Committee members had with MP Jan Tinetti recently, dwelt on the undervalued benefit of night classes and day courses in helping people meet others in their community, and overcoming loneliness and isolation. The courses aren’t just for you to learn a skill or hobby, but they meet a deep and meaningful need for social interaction and connection.
Loneliness appears to be a hot topic – and people getting involved in some form of Community Education could be one solution. While social media works for some, there are others who need real contact, verbal communication and interaction and to feel part of a group. Courses and classes give people the opportunity to gather with a common focus, and while undertaking that journey, they get their social needs met too.
While some people dismiss the idea and value of such courses, they are unknowingly disregarding the powerful side effects that social interaction in a safe and nurturing place can offer.
So next time you hear someone say they are lonely, or feel isolated, maybe you could suggest a local community education course, club or hobby group.. and emphasise the social interaction and contribution they could enjoy by attending.
