Thursday 22 July from 6pm to 7pm

Over the last year or two, Australia has been buffeted by unparalleled crises impacting our physical and mental health, from bushfires and flooding to the global pandemic. These events not only brought immediate challenges in crisis management and impacted our day-to-day lives, but also changed how we function as a society.

We are starting to see a return to “normalcy” - but what does this mean for our health, for business and for society at large? How do we work to recover morale and counter the doubts and concerns that linger? How can we shape our healthcare systems for the future, leading the way in addressing inequities and futureproofing as best we can to support everyone in our communities? Can we use this crisis to accelerate improvements in our health and society?

Professor Vlado Perkovic, Dean of UNSW Medicine & Health, hosts the first of the 2021 MedConnect series with a panel of senior health leaders to discuss leadership in health now and into the future including:

  • Dr Kerry Chant, Chief Health Officer for NSW Health

  • Cathryn Cox, CEO of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network

  • Professor Sir Edward Byrne, Chief Medical Officer of Ramsay Health Care

  • Professor Raina MacIntyre, NHMRC Principal Research Fellow, Head of the Biosecurity Program at the Kirby Institute, and Professor of Global Biosecurity at UNSW
