STEP Seminar Series 2014

STEP invites local and international colleagues to present their research and ideas on the general themes of health screening, monitoring and diagnostic testing. Speakers vary from academic researchers to public policy makers and are invariably topical and informative.

STEP is the result of a collaboration between the School of Public Health, University of Sydney, and Bond University.

Seminars are usually held from 1.00pm to 2.00pm on Wednesdays. Any time changes will be indicated in the table below. Anyone interested is welcome to join us.
