National rural and remote health research symposium open for registrations

27 May 2016

A public Symposium in Canberra in September 2016 will bring together leading researchers, data agencies and policy makers to discuss the current and emerging issues that shape rural health in Australia.
The 5th Rural and Remote Health Scientific Symposium is being convened by the Nation Rural Health Alliance in partnership with Primary Health Care Research and Information Service (PHCRIS); the Australian Rural Health Education Network (ARHEN); and the Federation of Rural Australian Medical Educators (FRAME).

The Symposium is a must-attend event for those interested in rural health research, policy, data and programs,” said Kim Webber, Chief Executive Officer of the National Rural Health Alliance.

It will bring together leading researchers, policy makers and rural and remote health experts to deliberate and discuss rural and remote health issues confronting Australia. The Symposium will provide an excellent chance to meet rural health experts, to share insights and learn from innovative research and service developments that may transform how services are delivered in rural areas in years to come.

The two day program will be available on the website in June and promises to be challenging and inspiring for delegates.

Registration for the Symposium is now open via the Symposium website at
