Tropical health HOT topic at forum

Excerpt from the NORTH WEST TELEGRAPH

The health of people living in the North West was discussed at a key forum in Port Hedland recently involving national and local experts in the field.

The Improving Health Outcomes in the Tropical North meeting on June 25-26 was part of a collaboration between the Telethon Kids Institute and the Pilbara Aboriginal Health Forum.

Known as HOT North, the four-year program funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council brings together researchers from eight organisations, including Menzies School of Health Research.
