 Promo Banner Small

 

The New Zealand College of Public Health Medicine is pleased to announce that the 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in Wellington from 6-8 September at the James Cook Hotel.

This year, the format of the ASM will differ slightly to that of previous years. In order to avoid a clash with the 10th NZ Immunisation Conference (IMAC conference), we have reordered our usual programme so that the Workshop takes place on Friday not Wednesday.

This year there are two ASM themes.  The focus for the Wednesday will be 'ending the cardiovascular disease epidemic in New Zealand'.  Thursday's focus will be 'improving the quality of our practice'.

Registration is now open!

You are invited to register for the NZ College of Public Health Medicine Annual Scientific Meeting and Workshop. Early bird discount has now closed.
