About the presenter
Ms. Barbara Wood
Ms. Barbara Wood is an Oncology Psychotherapist, and Founder and CEO of boob buddies Inc., a not-for-profit charity established to provide free in-home oncology psychotherapeutic support to children and adults affected by cancer.
Over many years as an oncology psychotherapist, it became increasingly evident to Ms. Wood that holistic care provided for children and adults affected by cancer was suboptimal. The need for free in-home oncology psychotherapeutic support was obviously essential to cancer patients’ well-being. This service has helped, and continues to help, innumerable cancer patients and their families.
In 2016, Ms. Wood was a key note presenter at the ‘International Conference on Oncology and Radiology’ in Dubai. This year, Ms Wood has received invitations to be a key note presenter in Sydney, Japan, Barcelona, Venice, and Rome.
In Australia, Ms. Wood was nominated for 2017 ‘Telstra Business Women’s Awards’, and 2018 ‘Gold Coast Citizen of The Year’.
