About this event

When: 6.30 - 8.30pm, Wednesday 16 February 2022

Where: Zoom (link provided on registration)

Cost: Free

Heatwaves are Australia’s most dangerous natural hazard, responsible for more deaths than storms, bush fires and floods combined. With longer, hotter summers predicted, it is important health practitioners understand how heat impacts common health conditions, and the patients that live with them.

Join us for an online seminar to discuss the impacts of heat on the human body, medications and mental health, as well as a broader look into Western Sydney's heat challenge and what is being done to cool our region and manage the impacts of extreme heat.

This even is presented by WSROC and The Hills Doctors Association, with speakers from Australian Medical Association NSW, Doctors for the Environment, RACGP, RANZCP, WentWest, Western Sydney Local Health District, Western Sydney University, and University of Sydney.
