Community and government representatives came together for the 2019 Healthy Tasmania Community Forum to celebrate work being achieved under the Healthy Tasmania Strategy. The forum allowed attendees to share ideas about health and wellbeing.
Organisations shared stories, achievements and described opportunities based on their community-based health and wellbeing projects.
Keynote presenters shared their research into the factors that influence community health and wellbeing. Speakers challenged forum participants to think differently about health and wellbeing, highlighting the need for collaboration across government sectors and partnerships within communities.
Forum participants discussed the barriers and enablers for health in Tasmania which will inform the future work of Healthy Tasmania. View the full presentations and discussion themes at Healthy Tasmania.
