The Alfred Health Week Keynote Address is a long-standing tradition on the Alfred precinct and a highlight of the Alfred Health Week events program.
On Tuesday, we were fortunate to host Professor John Thwaites AM, Chair of the Monash Sustainable Development Institute and Climateworks Centre. He delivered an insightful address about the challenges of climate change and how they impact on the health sector both here and overseas.
After John’s address, the Alfred Research Alliance publication prizes were awarded.
