Resilience & looking at the glass half full: VHA Annual Conference

Posted 04 July 2018

Advocate in empowering survivors of violence and trauma, Clare Keenan, will speak at the VHA Annual Conference, 16 and 17 August at the MCG.

Ms Keenan was lucky to survive a brutal stabbing in her 20s, and considers the attack a positive turning point in her life. At the conference, Rethink, reset, reimagine: Working towards a stronger Victorian health system, Ms Keenan will speak on the importance of resilience and looking at the half glass full.

In addition to her work as an advocate for victims, Ms Keenan has forged a career in public policy and public relations. She worked in former New Zealand Prime Minister, Helen Clark’s administration, help build one of the largest Arab news agency that produce anti-ISIS content globally and has handled Greg Norman’s public relations.

The two-day conference includes a mix of panel discussions, keynote presentations, and networking opportunities, and the chance to hear from Victoria’s major parliamentary parties.

Each session will provide delegates the chance to rethink, reset and reimagine core focus areas outlined in the VHA’s 2018 Victorian election positions. The conference will connect innovative thinking with practical case studies in areas including workforce, infrastructure, funding, digital health and demand management.

The program will also include a networking event on the first evening and a Digital Health Breakfast at the start of the second day.

VHA voting members receive a complimentary conference ticket by using the code RETHINK18 at registration. They can also access a two for one offer for additional registrants when purchasing a ticket. For more information and to register for the conference, click here.
