NACCHO Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Youth Health Conference: Future leaders of Tomorrow

Seventy-five young people from around Australia will meet on Tuesday 30th October at the inaugural NACCHO Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Youth Health Conference: Future leaders of Tomorrow in Brisbane to discuss health and public policy issues affecting our youth.

The National NACCHO Conference will hear from youth delegates the next day during a plenary session. NACCHO acknowledges that it’s important that delegates hear the voices from the next generation of young leaders who are representative of over Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples aged from 1-30 years of age.

 The 2018 Youth Conference  theme is Future leaders of Tomorrow.

The Conference will include opportunities for plenary discussions and action planning and a youth breakout session focused around issues, priorities and solutions for 2019 and beyond.

Tuesday 30 October at the Hilton Hotel in Brisbane
NACCHO Youth Conference will be held in the Queens Ballroom
from 11 am – 4.00 pm
