Your contribution to the lunch break
While we can’t offer the usual opportunity to socialise in the lunch break, we thought it might be insightful if we could share our experiences of working/studying in the lockdown. We invite you to send Lotte images of just what it’s like to work/study currently (images of you, your work space, or anything else that expresses medical physics during lockdown) – and she will turn them into a slide show that will play in the lunch break.  lottesfog@yahoo.co.uk

Zoom link
We plan to distribute the link to join the zoom seminar in the hour before we start but the session will not start until 9:00 AEST. We have been advised that participants will get the best experience using an up-to-date Zoom client or app. If this is not possible, our suggested browser is Chrome. Some features, such as polls may not be available with some browsers.

ACPSEM members will be awarded 10 CPD points for the Vic Tas Branch day if they are logged on to the event for 80% of its duration, excluding breaks.
