The Western NSW Health Research Network is taking its annual symposium online.
About 130 people attended the event last year in Dubbo, but this time, it will be held virtually.
On June 11 from 12.30pm, the symposium will bring together eight speakers, covering topics from Aboriginal health to digital research methods.
The webinar presenters are WHRN co-chair Mark Lock, Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health's Debb Warr, Charles Sturt University's Faye McMillan, Macquarie University's Karolyn White, Summer Finlay and Terry Chenery from The Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council Human Research Ethics Committee, and Cancer Council Western NSW's Ricky Puata.

It will be hosted by Megan Smith from Charles Sturt University with an opening from Western NSW Local Health District CEO Scott McLachlan. WHRN founding chair Catherine Hawke will also speak before the formal presentations.
Dr Hawke said it was important the symposium went ahead as the research work done in the region deserved to be highlighted.
"The symposium has gained much momentum in the past few years, so we are excited to be able to continue it this year in a purely virtual format," Dr Hawke said.
"We have many talented researchers and health clinicians in the region contributing to some amazing work, so we feel it's vital that work continues to be shared."
