The latest on APP2021, plus the PSA Onshore Refresher Conference hits the tropical north

A range of political and sporting figures have confirmed their appearance at the APP2021 Conference later this month.

The APP organising team announced this week that Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack, who is also Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, had confirmed he will be speaking at the event, on Thursday 20 May.

Mark Coulton MP, Minister for Regional Health, Regional Communications and Local Government, will also be presenting during this session time. With Mr Coulton’s ministerial responsibility for Regional Health, he will bring a unique perspective on the vital role community pharmacies play in regional areas of Australia.

Deputy PM McCormack and Minister Coulton join Federal leaders Hon Greg Hunt MP, Minister for Health and Aged Care, and Hon Mark Butler, Shadow Minister for Health and Aged Care, who are also speaking on Thursday, in what will be a jam-packed program.

This year’s attendees will also be treated to guest appearances from several sporting legends, plus presentations from Anna Meares and Steven Bradbury.

Among the fantastic Aussie sporting legends attending APP2021 on the Gold Coast will be Olympic Gold Medalist and two-time World Champion hurdler Sally Pearson, who will be sharing her wealth of nutritional knowledge.

Olympic Gold Medalist, champion swimmer and Gold Coast native Giaan Rooney will also be in attendance as well as former Australian Iron Man and surf lifesaving champion, Guy Leech.

Attendees might also be lucky enough to catch Michael Clarke, former Australian Cricket Captain or Simon Black, former Brisbane Lions player who took home three AFL Premierships and was awarded both the Brownlow and Norm Smith medals.

*Meanwhile, PSA has announced its “special” 2021 PSA “Offshore” Refresher conference is now rescheduled to 1-7 September, with Darwin as the selected venue.

“Covid-19 has prevented overseas travel again this year but we believe that Darwin comes closest to meeting our requirements for an interesting, different and exotic destination albeit not quite ‘offshore’”, said event co-ordinator Warwick Plunkett.

Pre-conference events will include the Red Centre (Uluru, Kings Canyon, Alice Springs), while post conference events will cover Katherine and Kakadu National Park.
