The annual La Trobe Rural Health School Research (LRHS) Conference celebrates rural health research undertaken by La Trobe University through the LRHS and its rural and regional partners. Our rural health research activities are based on regional, national and international collaborations that foster reciprocity. The conference will explore future-based research which addresses major challenges and opportunities in rural, regional and remote health; and will present a diverse range of research which demonstrates the strong relationship that exists between LRHS and industry and community partners.
Join us Monday evening for the Violet Vines Marshman Annual Oration.
