Edith Cowan University – Joondalup (Building 21, Room 201)
PLEASE NOTE: This Community Conversation is nearly at capacity. Once capacity has been reached, we will place any further registrations on a waitlist. The 'My heart matters: Community perspectives on improving heart health - Community Conversation' will centre around understanding societal perspectives on how we can halve the number of Australians experiencing heart attacks under the age of 70 years, and ultimately save lives. We will explore what the community believes should be the implementation and research priorities to prevent heart attacks in all Australians.



Bench to bedside to community: new interventions against childhood respiratory conditions - Community Conversation

28 August 2024, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Does your child suffer from frequent chesty cough, have asthma or has been admitted to hospital with a lung infection? If yes, we would like to hear from your lived experience about paediatric respiratory conditions. Bacteria and viruses in our noses have a profound impact on the health of our lungs, particularly in the early years of life. Prof. Mark Nicol, Dr Ritika Kar Bahal and their research team at the University of Western Australia study these bacteria and viruses of the nose in children to understand how some “friendly” microbes can be used to protect your child from these lung conditions.
