NATSIEHC23 Conference Updates
NATSIEHC23 organisers are excited to announce the first keynote speaker confirmed for this year’s Conference: Lauren Hutchinson, to deliver the 2023 Jilpia Nappaljari Jones Memorial Oration.
The Jilpia Nappaljari Jones Memorial Oration was first introduced in last year’s Conference. It aims to celebrate the contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to eye care. The Oration acknowledges the significant contribution Jilpia made to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health and her inspiration for a whole generation of amazing women leaders in eye health.
Abstract Submissions Extended
Abstract submission has been extended by two weeks, and will now close on Friday 17 March.
Thank you to everyone who already submitted an abstract, and from what was already submitted, the 2023 Conference is shaping up to be a particularly robust exchange of knowledge and ideas.
