A series of online forums focusing on social isolation and social prescribing are being co-hosted by Australian Disease Management Association (ADMA), Bolton Clarke Research Institute, Melbourne Academic Centre for Health, MSPGH, Monash Partners, and the Western Alliance.

The webinars are scheduled over lunchtime on the below dates. Join us for one or all three!

These will include a mix of research, learnings from trials and services that have been implemented, provide an opportunity to collate what is being done across Victoria; and are open to all healthcare and social care sectors, researchers and policy makers.
