Writs & Cures: Cancer expert Prof Grant McArthur plus privacy in the internet age.

Tuesday, 28th February 2017

In this edition of Writs & Cures the team are joined by one of Australia's leading cancer experts Professor Grant McArthur. Grant knows cancer as well as anyone. Not only is he a leading clinician, he is a world renowned researcher and the CEO of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre. Perhaps most important of all however, Grant has also experienced cancer. All of this gives Grant a unique perspective on the biggest health challenge our community faces.

And in the Soapbox segment the team take a look at privacy in the Internet age. When we give information to the government, how can they use it? What are the laws governing the sharing of our private information? Can they share it with the media? What about other government departments? Katie Miller will tell all!

Melbourne lawyer Katie Miller fills in for Bill O'Shea.
