Dear Supporter

It's been a busy month here at Prevention-land. We launched a shocking new ad that shows how you can gain over 5 kilos a year by drinking one can of soft drink a day. We also held a forum of leading public health experts to discuss how to address Australians' high consumption of sugary drink. Cairin took on a marathon, and melanoma patient Nathan Jones' wife wrote a beautiful blog reflecting on how cancer affected their family.

Thanks for your continued support.
