Brisbane Mito Information Day 2022

Saturday, 28 May @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm AEST

If you want to attend on the day and need assistance, please apply for a Mito Foundation Travel Grant.

The Mito Foundation understands that travel and accommodation costs can make it challenging for people outside capital cities to attend. We hope that by assisting with these costs, those experiencing financial hardships will enjoy the benefits of meeting the speakers and other attendees in person.
