Public Health Research Showcase

30 July 2019

The School of Public Health's Research Showcase is a biennial event that provides staff, students, affiliates and external partners and networks the opportunity to come together and celebrate the exciting and innovative research work being undertaken in public health. This conference is an important occasion in the School's calendar because it showcases the impressive research of our research students and early career researchers as well as highlighting our emerging research findings. In 2019, guest keynote speaker Mr Terry Slevin, CEO, Public Health Association of Australia, will begin the day presenting “Health and Medical Research – So what, why bother and who cares ?

 

The Showcase will include a wide variety of our up and coming experts presenting various topics on public health research and we will conclude the day with a panel discussion by four of the School's most experienced academics reflecting on their public health careers and sharing a little sage advice. We are pleased to announce we will also host a Public Health elevator pitch session where researchers and academics will give an engaging and dynamic talk on one of their research projects. The program outline can be viewed below.

 

Don't miss this unique chance to network with like-minded individuals.
