CHARM is the premier conference for the communication and translation of health related research practice in the ACT. The meeting explores challenges, opportunities and discoveries in health and medical research and provides opportunity for showcasing research, networking, collaboration and capacity building for researchers and clinicians in the ACT and beyond.

CHARM is an annual event held in collaboration with ACT Health, Heart Foundation ACT, The Australian National University, University of Canberra, University of New South Wales Canberra, and the Australian Catholic University, the Australian Institute of Sport.

In a time of population growth and increasing disease burden, the goal of a sustainable healthcare system is a key area for research, education and practice, which is critical to global health.

Throughout this three day meeting, expert presentations, oral abstract presentations, panel discussions, workshops and a poster exhibition will explore how interdisciplinary research can contribute to fulfilling this goal.

This meeting provides the opportunity to hear from international and national experts in cardiovascular research, chronic conditions research and interdisciplinary health researchers in the ACT.

This professional meeting strengthens interdisciplinary research by providing opportunities to collaborate and network with health researchers from across the rich diversity of disciplines that are essential for the improvement of health care research and service delivery.
