AHPA's National Health Promotion Symposium 2023

25 Oct 2023 - 26 Oct 2023, 12:00am-12:00am

AHPA is thrilled to be hosting a National Health Promotion Symposium on Wadawurrung Country, Geelong Victoria. 

Join us for critical, timely and insightful conversations with leading thinkers on the conditions that shape the health and wellbeing of our people, places and planet and the global and local imperative for bold health promotion action.

The Symposium will be held at the Geelong Events Centre at Rydges Geelong over two days: Wednesday 25th – Thursday 26th October 2023.

We are looking forward to bringing the health promotion sector together face to face for the first time since 2018 at this in-person event.
