HSRAANZ Events - 10th Dec 2012

The inaugural HSRAANZ PhD Student Prize will be announced at 4pm on Monday the 10th of December in the Meeting Room, Level 3, Mary Ann House, 645 Harris Street, Ultimo, NSW 2007.  The prize winner will then present their winning paper.  We hope that you will support this new award by attending the presentation. 

Following the award, the HSRAANZ is holding its Annual General Meeting at 4.30pm in the same location.  If you haven’t done so already please advise whether or not you will be attending.

Following the AGM at approximately 5.15pm there will be a public lecture by Mark Booth. Mark is First Assistant Secretary of the Primary and Ambulatory Care Division which aims to provide Australians with access to high quality, cost-effective, evidence-based primary care which coordinates with other types of care such as aged care services and hospital specialists. Mark has a background as a health economist, working in health policy areas in the UK and New Zealand. He joined the Department of Health and Ageing in 2010, undertaking several Branch Head roles including responsibility for the development and implementation of the Medicare Locals initiative.

In his presentation “Positioning primary health care at the centre of health systems – how far have we come through health reform?” Mark will provide an over view of health reform from working as a researcher, a health policy maker and senior health advisor in the UK and New Zealand, a Commonwealth Fund Harkness Fellow in the US, and more recently as part of the Senior Executive of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing. A flyer is attached and you can register for the lecture here.

Light refreshments will be served after the lecture. A map to the venue can be found here -

We hope that you will be able to join us for some or all of these events.
