Description

The Hazelwood Health Study Community Engagement Session is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 22 August in Morwell and will feature roundtable discussions between study researchers, staff and the community.

The purpose of the Community Engagement Session is to provide community members with updates on the study progress and findings to date. All attendees are encouraged to pose questions to the researchers throughout the event, and you can submit your questions now at: http://hazelwoodhealthstudy.org.au/community-links/community-briefings/


The Community Engagement Session will feature roundtables with key researchers focusing on:

  • Early Life Follow-up of Infants and Young Children
  • Psychological Impacts on Adults and School Children
  • Adult Impacts including Heart and Lung Health
  • Hazelinks analysis of Health Data, including Hospital and Ambulance data
  • Community Wellbeing and Older People

The event will be moderated by Gerard Callinan and the audience will have the opportunity to pose questions and discuss findings with study researchers.

Gerard has lived in Gippsland since 2000 when he began working with ABC Radio in Sale. During his time with the national broadcaster, he developed a reputation as a journalist who held those in power to account, while covering the local issues of the region including fires and floods.

We will also be joined by:

  • Jane Anderson (Latrobe Health Advocate)
  • Ian Needham (Executive Officer, Latrobe Health Assembly)
  • Bronwyn Green (Manager of Environmental Public Health, EPA Victoria)
  • Tony Murphy (Deputy Commissioner, Emergency Management Victoria)
