How can our community adapt to the changes resulting from COVID-19? From gathering restrictions to working from home, everyone has experienced unusual circumstances this year. This crisis has driven the impetus to overcome new and existing problems in Australia.

Tonight we will hear from two inspiring speakers discuss developments in telehealth when in-person consultations are not possible and how graduates can prepare themselves for the workforce during a recession.
