THE biggest event on the Australian rural and remote health calendar starts next Sunday, May 24, at the Darwin Convention Centre. More than 1000 delegates will come together to help achieve better health and wellbeing for people living in rural and remote areas during the 13th National Rural Health Conference. Over the four days delegates will share their experiences of the challenges that remote and rural communities have been faced with and overcome. More importantly, they will develop innovative solutions for better health and celebrate what a great place rural and remote Australia is to live in. The conference will see the formation of a powerful if temporary community, based on the common interests of people from around the nation. They will represent the entire range of health and other caring professions, all of them determined to put rural and remote health in the policy spotlight and improve wellbeing on the ground.
