Both academics and students from those schools/centres are strongly encouraged to attend the conference.

The Publishing Awards aim to recognise the academic publishing successes of the School of Public Health (SPH), the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health, and the Centre for Health Services Research (CHSR) HDR students.
