Become a Medical Researcher!


On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the ASMR NSC, we would like to invite you to the 50th ASMR conference: Indigenous Health: ACTION on Prevention at the Cairns Convention Centre, Cairns, Queensland Australia.

The health challenges facing indigenous Australians are many and varied, with significant Federal investment aimed at further understanding the complicated nature of these problems, and new ways of tackling them.

This unique meeting will bring together indigenous health experts to discuss their recent advances in areas including infectious, cardiovascular, metabolic, eye, gut and psychosocial diseases and disorders. The proactive theme of the meeting highlights the main premise, which is to highlight research that is achieving real health outcomes.

The NSC program committee has already confirmed the two plenary invited speakers:  The Firkin Oration will be presented by Professor Sir Mason Durie of Massey University, NewZealand, and the Edwards Oration to be given by Indigenous maternal and child health expert, Professor Sandra Eades from the Baker IDI  Heart & Diabetes Institute, Victora.

We look forward to your participation at this celebratory 50th ASMR conference.

Themes Include:

Primary and preventative healthcare
Mental and Psychosocial health
Maternal and child health
Infectious disease
Amplifiers of chronic disease
