Head or Heart?

Victorian Male Health Conference - important development

The inaugural Victorian Male Health Conference is less than one week away and there has been an important development:   

Unfortunately the Conference has not been able to attract sufficient registrations to make the Gathering financially viable over two days.

Consequently, the Gathering has been reduced to a one day program to be held on Monday 19 November, details of which are attached.  This will still be an action-packed conference, with many of the original presenters still appearing.  It’s a professional development day to be spent with like-minded colleagues.  In addition, one of Australia’s top comedians, Ben Price, is making an appearance right at the beginning with ‘What Price Male Health?’ 

The Committee regrets the need to make these changes, but believes that what they are providing will be great value for both the time and money spent. In fact it may now be more viable for you to attend – less money and less time. What better way to spend International Men’s Day – particularly if you work with men!
