|The ASMR is pleased to continue our series of monthly professional development and engagement seminars:
ASMR Webinar – Advocating for Health and Medical Research
Date: Thursday 30th September
Time: 4-5pm AEST
Registration: Free for ASMR members, register here
The health and medical research sector is facing challenging times. Despite the importance of health and medical research during the current COVID-19 pandemic, funding for our sector has rarely been more tenuous. As we approach the next Federal election we have an opportunity to lobby for increased support for health and medical research, particularly the support of emerging scientists to promote sustainability of the sector.
Join our panel discussion to hear from Dr Ryan Davis (ASMR President) about the ongoing work of the ASMR to advocate for increased investment into the sector. Also, hear from Professor Maria Kavallaris, Dr Maree Overall and Dr Roger Yazbek about ways each of us can contribute to political advocacy and to lobby our local representatives to support the health and medical research sector.
If you’ve been enjoying these webinars, why not invite someone who isn’t an ASMR member to join the Society so they too can access all the benefits of being an ASMR member, including these webinars and ASMR’s advocacy for a more secure health and medical research sector.
