Communicating for change

Communication is rapidly changing, from tools and channels to language and delivery. The scientific biomedical research and health sectors are also changing with the introduction of new technologies and the resulting discoveries and innovations, changing healthcare, research and society. How we communicate these changes – messaging, influencing and connecting- also impacts how these changes are perceived and received. Where do communication professionals in health and biomedical research sit in this era of change?

Join your colleagues and peers in scientific, medical and health communications portfolios from across Victoria to share ideas, knowledge and experiences in BioMedVic’s fourth annual forum.

This event is relevant to directors, department heads, managers, advisors and officers working in media, communications, public affairs, marketing and event management roles.

Keynote speaker:

  • Jason Gale, Senior editor at Bloomberg News
    Award-winning journalist, Jason Gale is a senior editor here in Melbourne with the international news organisation Bloomberg News, where he’s worked for 19 years. He edits mostly feature articles, and occasionally gets to report stories about medical science or global health. Jason has been a speaker and panelist at international medical, scientific and veterinary meetings. In 2007, he was asked by the World Health Organization to be one of three members of the media to advise public health officials globally on communications related to pandemic influenza. Last year, he completed a Master of Health Security from the University of Sydney.
