Remote health conference



The Mount Isa Centre for Rural and Remote Health (MICRRH) offers travel grants to support students from Queensland universities and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from the community sector to attend their conference. The aim of the travel grants is to enable applicants to enhance their knowledge of research theory and practice by presenting at the Are you remotely interested conference. The conference is held biennially. The last conference was held in Mount Isa in August 2012.

Up to $1500 is available per applicant to assist with travel and accommodation costs. Registrations are provided to successful applicants. Applicants are requested to outline their objectives in attending the conference and submit an abstract for the conference (abstract details can be obtained from the website). Successful applicants may be asked for additional information about their submission, and will be required to write a brief report (approximately 300 words) after the conference.

Organised and sponsored jointly by leading education, research, health, and injury prevention organisations across Australia, including MICRRH, James Cook University, Farm Safe Australia, Queensland Injury Prevention Council, North and West Primary Health Care, this event provides opportunities for working across sectors and within organisational interests with a focus on a healthy and vibrant future for Australia's northern remote regions such as outback north and west Queensland.
