The Rotary Club of Camberwell has been engaged with Myeloma Australia since it began more than twenty-five years ago. The Rotary Outreach Myeloma Program (ROMP) is an ongoing community service program of the Rotary Club of Camberwell in collaboration with Myeloma Australia.

The ROMP Scholarship is a project run by a Rotary Club of Camberwell Committee, collaborating with Rotary Clubs of regional Victoria. The scholarship is offered to selected registered nurses employed in rural and regional cancer centres or clinics in Victoria to complete a Graduate Certificate in Cancer Nursing at Melbourne University. The online course is over a year on a part time basis. The scholarship is funded by participating Rotary clubs, their communities and sponsors.
‘We are tackling myeloma - and all cancers - in regional Victoria, one Rotary Club and one nurse at a time'.
The ROMP Road Show series has seen us to date in many locations across Victoria – including Horsham, Warrnambool, Bairnsdale, Wodonga, Eaglehawk, Shepparton and (now) Traralgon. Within the next few weeks, we will visit Ballarat as the guests of the Rotary Club of Alfredton.
All club members will be invited to share some great Rotary fellowship.
‘People living with cancer in regional and remote locations need and deserve the same treatment resources and outcomes that are more readily accessible in Melbourne'.
With the help of our regional Rotary friends and sponsors we are making a difference by building support for change, and by upskilling registered nurses employed in regional cancer treatment centres through the Rotary Outreach Myeloma Scholarships offered by our club.
