  • Lucy Wickham (AHPA Board Director, and Chair National Accreditation Organisation Management Committee) will overview the Australian health promotion registration system, from a student and early career practitioner perspective.
  • Kalyisah Farid (Program Lead at Foodbank WA) will share her experiences as an IUHPE Registered Health Promotion Practitioner, focusing on the competencies of enabling change, advocating for health, and mediating through partnership.
