DES Awareness Weeks - The way to go!

The DES Awareness Week event provides an instant angle on the DES story for journalists and the public attention generated helps DES exposed people who otherwise would not have known about the harm of DES and the special health care they need.

These events have successfully raised awareness of DES Australia-wide and helped many DES exposed people.
