The 2018 Health Beyond Research & Innovation Showcase unveiled an exciting future filled with advances in innovation and technology which will benefit the people of our community and the world. The two-day event was an outstanding success and I was thrilled to see so many staff members learning more about our research and meeting fellow health professionals to form collaborations and new networks. I hope to see you all at next year’s showcase on 5 and 6 June 2019.
The Health Beyond Research & Innovation Showcase is an event where allied health professionals, nurses, doctors and researchers in south western Sydney present abstracts across the disciplines of health service research, cancer, community health, clinical medicine, biomedical research, mental health and many other areas.
The Showcase has given us an opportunity to promote environment, health, research and education in south western Sydney and has been a drawcard in developing the vision for the future of Sydney. Presentations include current programs underway at the Ingham Institute and the South Western Sydney Local Health District; together with our valued partners, UNSW Australia and Western Sydney University.
The theme for 2018 was “Building better healthcare for the future”. There was an emphasis on innovation, technology, automation and importantly on providing the necessary infrastructure for a healthy community. The Showcase aimed to draw attention to developing a vision for the national and global future of Healthcare.
