AIDA Conference

The AIDA Conference 2017 celebrated 20 years since the inception of the organisation. Through the theme Family. Unity. Success. 20 years strong we reflected on the successes that have been achieved over the last 20 years by being a family and being united. We also looked to the future for AIDA and considered how being a united family will help us achieve all the work that still needs to be done in growing our Indigenous medical students, doctors, medical academics and specialists, and achieving better health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
