Conference Postponed to 19 – 22 May 2022
Due to the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the Organising Committee of AusPATH Conference 2021 have made the difficult decision to postpone the Conference until May 2022. The new dates of the Conference will be 19 – 21 May 2022 and will still be held at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Esplanade Darwin.
While we have a fantastic program including incredible speakers and panellists, the COVID-19 situation across Australia is not stable and will undoubtedly impact on attendance. Although holding a virtual or hybrid Conference in August was considered, we felt strongly that this Conference should be held in-person. The importance of this is to connect all our delegates and provide support to them throughout the Conference.
If you are a delegate, presenter or sponsor, please be aware that we have emailed you on the next steps.
If you have any questions that have not been answered, please give us a call on +61 2 9265 0700 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for accommodation and registration queries, or email@example.com for program enquiries.
Thank you for supporting the AusPATH Conference, please ensure you save the new dates in your calendar and we look forward to seeing you in Darwin in 2022!
On behalf of the Australian Professional Association for Trans Health, it is my pleasure to invite you to the Biennial AusPATH Conference, to be held from 19 – 22 May 2022, at Double Tree by Hilton on the Esplanade, Darwin Northern Territory.
The theme of the Conference is Building Bridges: Walking Together into Tomorrow.
The program will feature a mixture of international and Australian plenary speakers, with an emphasis on local content from experts and community in the Northern Territory. Sessions will represent the domains of medicine, allied health, education, ethics and human rights, with a whole day devoted to trans and gender diverse youth. There will be workshops, panel discussions and presentation of new research, and of course some brilliant social functions for networking!
We welcome all trans, gender diverse and non-binary people in the community to attend, and we especially welcome Sistergirls and Brotherboys. We also welcome all doctors-in-training, and parents of TGD youth.
The backdrop is beautiful Darwin in the Top End, a setting famous for its relaxed nature, amazing weather and glorious sunsets. The AusPATH Conference is a unique and exciting opportunity to meet other professionals and community members who are passionate about delivering high quality care and support to the trans community. You will expand your knowledge, make new acquaintances and catch up with old friends. You might even meet a croc or two!
I look forward with great anticipation to seeing you there.
Dr Fiona Bisshop. President, Australian Professional Association for Trans Health.
