Women Against Heart Disease Lunch
in memory of Monica O’Loughlin
WHEN: Thursday 2nd June 2016
WHERE: Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney
In partnership with the CBA’s Women in Focus initiative, the Victor Chang Institute will be hosting the 5th Women Against Heart Disease Luncheon on Thursday 2nd June in Sydney. With your vital support, you can help our dedicated scientists find cures for deadly heart conditions. Importantly, the event will also raise awareness of heart disease in women – a condition that is frequently ignored or overlooked, despite being the most common cause of death and claiming three times more lives as breast cancer. The inspiring event will include a panel discussion facilitated by Master of Ceremonies Dr Norman Swan.
We look forward to seeing you there!
2015 Women’s Lunch A Super Success!
On behalf of the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, we would like to pass on our sincere thanks to everyone who attended the Monica O’Loughlin Women Against Heart Disease Lunch on Friday 1st May 2015! We hope you had a wonderful time and most importantly learnt a thing or two about your heart health, the future of medical research and the vital role of female scientists.
I’m sure we all enjoyed Amanda Keller’s sense of humour and passion for the cause. Similarly, our keynote speaker, Kerryn Phelps did a fabulous job, and we are very grateful that Amanda, Kerryn and the rest of the talented panel were able to take time out from their busy schedules to support us.
We are delighted to announce, by attending the lunch, you have helped raise more than $70,000 for the Victor Chang Institute. Every single dollar will go towards finding a cure for heart disease!
It was also great to see so much love for the camera! Here are a couple of our favourite photos… we are particularly fond of the pink wig!

Finally, we hope you love your new tea towel and cookbook as much as we do! A special thanks to Flora Pro-activ for supplying the goodies. We have already picked out some yummy recipes to try, the ‘lime and beef noodle salad’ is a winner!
Lots of love,
The team at the Victor Chang Institute
