POSTPONED – Rethinking Remote 2020
30th April 2020
Rethinking Remote 2020 will be our third conference focussing on innovative solutions in remote and rural health and wellbeing.
Each year the conference has grown and developed. What makes the conference special is the cross sector sharing of information, ideas, research and solutions from experts both locally and from across the globe. It provides a showcase for the sharing of practical initiatives that are already making a difference to the health and wellbeing of remote and rural communities.
This year we have moved the conference to the MacDonald Aviemore Resort to ensure that the auditorium, accommodation, exhibition area, posters and workshops are all within one purpose built complex. By combining the delegate rate, dinner and accommodation into one conference package we have also managed to reduce the cost to delegates from previous years.
