The Menzies Centre for Health Policy invites you to join us for the 6th annual Emerging Health Policy Research Conference.
Keynote Speaker: Hon Dr Geoff Gallop, Professor, Director, Graduate School of Government, University of Sydney
Topic: From research to politics
The conference will showcase the work in progress of current doctoral and early career research workers, as well as those new to the field of health policy research. We invite research workers from all areas of health policy - including international health, health systems, history of public health, indigenous health, health economics, health promotion and sociology - to submit an abstract of their presentation.
Participation in the Emerging Health Policy Research Conference will provide an opportunity to:
- discuss health policy responses to current local, national and global health challenges;
- present in progress health policy research to a wide audience of students, academics and practitioners; and
- discuss new ideas and identify opportunities for collaboration across disciplinary boundaries.
