Connie the Clever Cockie presents: Building Prevention Success Stories

Hi TIS Teams! I’m excited to bring you this special update, sharing the key highlights from my experience at the Public Health Association of Australia Preventive Health Conference 2024 held in Garramilla (Darwin) on Larrakia Country. The conference was attended by health professionals and other stakeholders from across Australia. A key focus of the conference was exploring the many ways we can build preventive health success.

During the three-day event, I had the chance to discuss, share, and learn about the latest research, strategies, and innovations in preventative health. The conference featured inspiring keynote speakers (some of them from our TIS family) and showcased success stories in areas such as nutrition, physical activity, education, climate change, and maternal health – as well as my focus for the conference: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, tobacco control, and vaping.

I particularly appreciated listening to the latest research findings from Australian Indigenous researchers on tobacco control and approaches to addressing vaping. Below are highlights from some of the presentations I was able to catch. For more information about these presentations, you can visit the conference website here.
