The Event

The Burnet Institute invites you to attend the Centre for Research Excellence into Injecting Drug Use (CREIDU) annual Colloquium on 16 July 2012.  

CREIDU’s vision is to improve the health of people who inject drugs through the generation of new evidence and the development of tools for translating research into policy and practice.  The Centre is funded by the NHMRC.  

With an interactive format and exciting mix of speakers the Colloquium is designed to draw together researchers, affected communities, policy makers and practitioners to discuss research findings and their implications for policy and practice.    

The Colloquium is highly interactive, with expert presentations and opportunities for audience participation.
