Friends activities in Hobart, March 2019
Every second year brings the opportunity for Friends to come together and engage in some great activities during the biennial National Rural Health Conference. People interested in rural health from all over Australia, including Friends, gather to exchange news and views on life in their local communities. The next Rural Health Conference is the 15th and it is being held in Hobart, 24-27 March 2019. As a Friend of the Alliance you are eligible to receive a discounted registration to the 15th National Rural Health Conference and join in the various Friends activities on offer. We hope to see you in Hobart!
Photo and Poetry Competitions
In conjunction with the National Rural Health Conference, Friends of the Alliance hosts an amateur Photographic Competition and an amateur Poetry Competition to celebrate life in rural and remote Australia.
Through photos and poems we ask you to capture the magic of life in remote and rural areas.
Finalists from each category (photographs and poems) are exhibited at the biennial Conference and judged by the delegates attending the event.
