MSHS RHD colloquium

A comprehensive overview of MSHS graduate research, featuring over 60 oral and poster presentations in physiotherapy, social work, nursing, audiology, speech pathology, optometry and vision science.


Thanks to plenary speaker Owen Churches for kicking things off with a presentation titled 'Health Research Out in the World: Keeping Your Head Amidst the Hype'.

And thank you to the wonderful academic and administrative staff who took the day to work with the RHDs and to judge the myriad of posters and oral presentations. And of course, thank you again to our sponsors, whose contributions each year have helped to motivate young RHDs towards oratory and dialectic excellence.
