Two neurological nurses, Kym Heine and Dianne Hull, from the Neurological Council of WA, visited the Dumbleyung CRC on May 22nd and delivered an interactive information session. The material was well received by those who attended, with many questions asked during the power point presentation and a lot of valuable points covered.
