Following the success of the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting in Adelaide, The Australian and New Zealand Society of Occupational Medicine (ANZSOM) will again be joined by The Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (AFOEM) to present the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting in Launceston, Tasmania, hosted by the Victorian and Tasmanian Branch of ANZSOM.
We invite you to consider being part of the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society to be held in March 2020, at the innovative and spectacular Peppers Silo Hotel on the banks of the Tamar in Launceston. The 2020 ASM will be something out of the ordinary with “Four Days on the Island” to learn and connect in a more relaxed location. The format of site visits, workshops and technical sessions, combined with numerous social and networking events will provide outstanding opportunities to interact with delegates.
Please explore what the prospectus has to offer or contact us to discuss your ideas for involvement. We hope to see you in Tasmania!
