Aboriginal Health Conference 2016

AHC2016 wrap up

The Rural Health West Aboriginal Health Conference supports health practitioners working in rural communities, and those who are striving to make a significant difference in the lives of Aboriginal Australians. 

Delegates who attended the conference in July had the opportunity to network, learn, and collaborate with others who share their passion. This one-stop-shop conference is the only conference held in Western Australia that provides a high level of relevant clinical updates, with a particular focus on health professionals working in Aboriginal Medical Services. Maintaining current skills and knowledge means that rural health professionals are better equipped to serve their communities and can continue to make a beneficial change to the lives of their Aboriginal patients.

“Fantastic conference as always…the passion and energy of the presenters and other delegates is amazing. I had been toying with the idea of pursuing a career in a different field of medicine other than general practice. The conference brought me right back around to the strong commitment...to be a rural GP, ideally working in an Aboriginal Medical Service.” – 2016 delegate
