Event description
Resilience - what we have learnt and how we can 'build back better' for a healthier future

About this Event

The Health and Wellbeing theme at Western Sydney University welcomes you to Research Week at Western. For further events during this week, please visit the website at www.westernsydney.edu.au/researchweek

2020 has presented our community in Western Sydney and beyond with enormous challenges. Thousands were affected by drought and bushfires, and the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all.

Western Sydney University researchers responded rapidly to these crises, collaborating to address important questions that directly affect our health and wellbeing. This work ranges from laboratory work developing small inhibitory RNA targeting the SarsCoV2 virus; to understanding the effectiveness of telehealth in delivering health services for children and adults; to the mental health impacts of COVID-19.

This past year has been characterised by uncertainty, but also resilience. We would like to share what we have learned and discuss with you how these learnings can help to “build back better’, ensuring resilient and adaptive systems and services, not just for emergencies but for a healthier future.

Organisers: Prof Virginia Schmied & A/Prof Paul Breen, Health and Wellbeing Research Theme Champions.

Please note: The Zoom link will be emailed to you the day prior to the event
