The Raine Study Symposium 2023 – Thursday 26 October

The Raine Study Symposium will take place on Thursday 26 October 2023, in-person at the University Club of Western Australia.

For 2023 our event theme is “Family”, reflecting the fact that our history-making Generations follow-up is underway, involving three generations of Raine Study participants for the very first time. Not just a Raine Study first, this also makes the Raine Study the world’s first 3-generation pregnancy cohort study. The goal of this year’s Symposium is to celebrate the possibilities this represents for current and future generations of Raine Study researchers and participants as we continue to explore the intergenerational determinants of health and wellbeing from before birth and throughout life’s course.  


This event is free to attend but registration is required. Register now via Eventbrite. Registration closes Wednesday 25 October.
