ASMR Medical Research Week ® Gala Dinner

June 2

Queensland Health & Medical Research Awards and ASMR MRW® Queensland Gala Dinner supported by the Queensland Government

The Pullman Brisbane King George Square (Grand Windsor Room)

Features the ASMR Medalist 2017 and presentation of the prestigious Queensland Health & Medical Research Awards.

Keynote Speaker,  ASMR Medalist 2017

Professor Richard Wilkinson – Scientist, Author and Advocate

Professor Wilkinson is Professor Emeritus of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham, co-founder of The Equality Trust and auther of the international bestseller “The Spirit Level”.  Throughout a distinguished career examining the social determinants of health, Professor Wilkinson’s research has uncovered that economic inequality is the key driver for numerous health (and social) problems in developed countries such as Australia.  The identification of this strong causal relationship has commanded a re-think of policy development with a renewed focus on addressing the underlying problem rather than treating specific health and social problems as unrelated phenomena.
