Chronic Diseases Network conference



The conference theme this year is Promoting healthy childhood - preventing chronic conditions. The conference program will explore the range of factors during the early years that contribute to chronic diseases later in life. Chronic diseases can be the result of influences during pregnancy, childhood, or adolescence. Influences on chronic conditions later in life include, but are not limited to, whether a mother smokes in pregnancy, a child's diet and level of physical activity, exposure to domestic violence, parenting, and social determinants of health such as level of schooling, and the socioeconomic status of the family.

If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person working or studying in health, child welfare or education and would like the opportunity to attend the conference as a sponsored delegate or presenter, then apply now. Sponsorship may cover conference registration costs, travel and accommodation, if required. It will be offered to applicants based on the selection criteria in the application form.

Applications close Friday 20 July.

Abstract submissions close Friday 4 May 2012.

Earlybird registration closes Friday 27 July 2012.
