2013 National Men's Health Gathering - Program Now Available

The 2013 National Men's Health Gathering has received overwhelming interest and it is with great pleasure that we now release the program.

  • As with previous Gatherings, the program is colour-coded to indicate the streams available on each day.
  • For cultural reasons, attendance at sessions designated for the National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Male Health Convention, are restricted to men only, with the exception of the 0900 -1030 plenary session on Tuesday 22nd October. To accommodate women who have registered for the entire Gathering, we have introduced a special program on Tuesday - 'Working with Women in Men’s Health’, which is open to all registered delegates.
  • In response to the ongoing national gender debate, the AMHF is presenting its inaugural National Forum, ‘21st Century Man’ on Thursday 1100-1230. This Q & A - style event is not to be missed!
  • Your registration has more inclusions than ever before - the Cocktail Reception with Troy Cassar-Daley, the Awards Night Dinner and the Friday Gala Lunch with Peter FitzSimons.
  • With a diverse range of papers and workshops and an exciting social program for networking, this year’s event will be the most significant men's health and well being conference in the world.

Just SOME of the National Men's Health Gathering Keynote Speakers

Warren Farrell

image007.153001.jpg

Warren Farrell is an American educator, activist and author of seven books on men's and women's issues. He came to prominence in the 1970s as one of the leading male thinkers championing the cause of second wave feminism, and serving on the New York City Board of the National Organization of Women (NOW). However, when NOW took policy positions that Farrell regarded as anti-male and anti-father, he continued supporting the expansion of women’s options while adding what he felt was missing about boys, men and fathers. He is now recognized as one of the most important figures in the modern men's movement.
In 2009, a call from the White House requesting Dr. Farrell to be an advisor to the White House Council on Women and Girls led to Dr. Farrell creating and chairing a commission to create a White House Council on Boys and Men. The multi-partisan commission consists of thirty-five authors and practitioners (e.g., John Gray, Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Michael Gurian, Michael Thompson, Bill Pollack, Leonard Sax) of boys' and men's issues. They have completed a study that defines five components to a "boys' crisis," which has been submitted as a proposal for President Obama to create a White House Council on Boys and Men.
