External Events

Students and Young Professionals in Public Health

Networking Night

 

Date: Monday 16 September

Time: 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Location: South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute

The event is a chance to meet other students and young professionals and will involve World Café style sessions to network and gain some handy career insights from Australian public health experts. It is also a great way for conference attendees (especially first-timers) to meet so that there are some familiar faces for you to approach during morning and afternoon tea breaks! Local students and young professionals who are unable to attend the Australian Public Health Conference are welcome (and encouraged!) to attend.

The event is being held in the iconic SAHMRI building, South Australia’s independent flagship health and medical research institute, colloquially referred to as ‘the cheese grater’. A light supper will also be provided.

This event is being hosted by the Public Health Association of Australia Student and Young Professionals in Public Health Committee in collaboration with PHAA SA Branch and the Australian Health Promotion Association SA Branch.
