The SA State Population Health Conference is the premier developmental opportunity for emerging public health researchers and practitioners to present their work to a local audience.

In 2018, we are embracing our diversity, and acknowledging the role each of us play in supporting populations to
improve their health. Our focus is on developing links between research, advocacy, practice and policy. We aim to
learn from others in our field and support the work we all do to contribute to better health in South Australia.
We invite abstract submissions on any topic in public health, from anyone involved in supporting health. You don’t
have to be a researcher to submit.

Why should you submit your work to the State Population Health Conference?

  • It’s a friendly and supportive environment to share your project or research
  • We welcome abstracts for projects or research regardless of the stage of the project or thesis
  • Your abstracts are peer reviewed
  • You can let us know your preference for an oral or poster presentation

Things to know about the abstract submission process
You can submit abstracts for either oral or poster format, but the peer reviewers may offer you an alternate
choice, depending on the number of abstracts received and the places available on the program.

Presenters must register for the conference once they are notified of their abstract being accepted.
