Primary Health Care Conference - less than two weeks to go!

Adelaide PHN and Country SA PHN's jointly hosted SA Primary Health Care Conference is almost here (Friday 14 and Saturday 15 June 2019)!

We have received a huge level of interest from health professionals across South Australia - the main conference is sold out and only a few places remain on our GP-only Category 1 Mental Health Workshop. We have a record number of sponsors and exhibitors this year, and a great line-up of speakers!
