Annual Conference big success

Posted

Well that’s a wrap!

The 2016 VHA Annual Conference Inspiring Health Leadership was a huge success, with many attendees saying it was the best health conference they’d attended.

VHA CEO Tom Symondson thanked the attendees – health leaders from metro, community, rural and regional health services – and speakers for their engagement, enthusiasm and support.

“The VHA is in its 78th year – it was certainly the best conference we’ve held to date with an excellent, informative and thought provoking program.

“I’d like to particularly thank our dedicated staff for their wonderful effort.”

The VHA’s #vicpublichealth trended as Australia’s fifth most popular hashtag, a stellar effort, Mr Symondson said.
