Introduction by Croakey: Live-tweeting of a conference does not always capture all the nuances and key points from all the important discussions. But it can go a long way to providing some highlights and insights.
Below is a Twitter wrap from the recent Population Health Congress – warm thanks to all who contributed to #PopCongress2022 tweets. Readers wanting more detail about presentations mentioned in the tweets below are encouraged to check the conference program.
The Congress, held every three to four years, brings together Australia and New Zealand’s four leading professional population health organisations: Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA); Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA); Australasian Epidemiological Association (AEA); and the Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine (AFPHM).
The theme for the conference, held from 21-23 September, on Kaurna Country in Adelaide, was ‘Towards a just, safe and sustainable future for Australasia’.
With thanks to #PopCongress2022 tweeps:
