Event description

Description

It is a pleasure to invite you to the one-day conference: “Hearing Our Voices: The Importance of Community Engagement and Innovation in Indigenous Health Research”. The conference is organised by Prof Sandra Eades and A/Prof Elif Ekinci of the University of Melbourne, with funding from the Australian Health Research Alliance and in conjunction with Melbourne Academic Centre for Health, and will take place on 26 November 2018 at The Melbourne Brain Centre’s Ian Potter Auditorium (Kenneth Myer Building), on the main campus of the University of Melbourne.

​Statement of Purpose: To bring together Indigenous health researchers across the Melbourne Academic Health Centre Network and provide a forum for voices to be heard, achievements to be celebrated and collaborations to form.

The conference will feature top Indigenous health researchers from across Victoria as well as young researchers and allied health and health services staff.

Specific outcomes for the Indigenous health research day will be to continue our mapping of Indigenous health research across the MACH network. We also plan to create a videography and pilot mapping project of the people, voices and experiences of those contributing to Indigenous health research, including researchers and students, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people with a shared commitment for improving Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander health outcomes. Our activities will culminate in a map of Indigenous health researchers with embedded videos serving as a unique and powerful resource for the MACH network and the University of Melbourne.

***NOTE: A conference program will be distributed in November***

Prof Sandra Eades, the University of Melbourne, Associate Dean Indigenous
A/Prof Elif Ekinci, the University of Melbourne and Austin Health
