NATSIEHC23 Save the Date

2023 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference Information

Please save the date for the 2023 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference (NATSIEHC23), which will be held on Dharug Country in Western Sydney from Wednesday 24 to Friday 26 May 2023.

The 2023 Conference is once again led by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Conference Leadership Group (CLG). The CLG and Indigenous Eye Health Unit (IEHU) at TheUniversity of Melbourne are delighted to also announce that the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW (AH&MRC) has accepted invitation to co-host NATSIEHC23.

The 2023 Conference will build on the wonderful 2022 Conference, where over 220 delegates gathered on Larrakia land in Darwin over 3 days in May. Since 2017, the national conferences have developed into a key annual gathering of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health sector. The annual conference provides a wonderful opportunity for a wide variety of voices to discuss and share success stories and challenges in eye health from across Australia.

The Conference aims to advance the collective work of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health sector towards the shared goal of improving eye health access and outcomes of First Nations Australians. Delegates will include representatives from Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations and other primary care service providers, eye care clinicians, policy makers, researchers, non-government organisations, hospitals, professional peak bodies and government departments from across the country.

Please save the date to join us in Parramatta in May 2023.

Further details, including registration, call for abstracts, nomination of awards and more specific conference details including venue and accommodation options will follow.

Please email with any questions.

Warm regards
NATSIEHC23 Conference Management Group
