On behalf of the Board of Directors and the CRANAplus team, I welcome you to the 37th CRANAplus conference in the beautiful Hunter Valley.

These are the traditional lands of the Wonnarua people and we pay our respects to them as the First Peoples and acknowledge their Elders both past and present. Around the Hunter Valley, there are some cultural sites that are open to the public including Biaime Cave, Tiddilick Rock and Finchley Trig. The Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s major wine growing regions, famous for its Semillon and Shiraz with a viticultural history dating back to the 1800s. There are mountain bike trails and bush walking opportunities in the stunning world heritage listed Yengo National Park. I hope you get the chance to explore this premier food and wine destination whilst attending the conference.

CRANAplus strongly advocates for diversity and equality in line with this year’s conference theme ‘Embracing Diversity to Build Stronger Connections’. We have some wonderful presenters to challenge and inspire you. We are proud to host this exciting conference and we look forward to greeting you – clinicians, students, educators, policy makers and health leaders which contribute to the rich diversity of the rural and remote landscape.

Please take the opportunity over the next few days to build stronger connections yourself, engage with our presenters, exhibitors and make new friends and contacts. Come over and say hello to me, I will welcome the opportunity to personally meet you and hear your story,

Warm regards,

Katherine Isbister
Chief Executive Officer | CRANAplus
