What’s on at APP2021


The Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference (APP2021) will be well headlined by leaders in Australian politics, sport and public health says APP Convenor and former Guild National President, Kos Sclavos.

The Covid Safe event is taking place place on the Gold Coast this week with Mr Sclavos saying delegates would be spoilt for choice with the conference hearing from Deputy Prime Minister Hon Michael McCormack MP, Health and Aged Care Minister Hon Greg Hunt MP, Regional Health Minister Hon Mark Coulton MP, and Shadow Health and Aged Care Minister Hon Mark Butler MP.

“Hon Bart Mellish MP, Assistant Minister to the Premier for Veterans’ Affairs, Trade and Covid Economic Recovery in Queensland, representing Hon Stirling Hinchcliffe MP, Queensland Minister for Tourism Industry Development and Innovation and Minister for Sport, will be opening the sold-out trade exhibition at the Welcome Reception.”

“APP2021 is the place to be to hear from our nation’s leaders and to be heard – the support shown by the number of senior politicians, coming fresh off the budget sitting, shows how valued this conference is by Canberra,” Mr Sclavos adds, “There’s still a little time left for those who have yet to purchase tickets.”

Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young will also address the pharmacy industry at APP2021.

“Dr Young has been in her role for over 15 years and has lead Queensland selflessly through the Covid-19 pandemic, to ensure that the community is safe and healthy. This is a unique opportunity for the pharmacy industry to hear from these leaders.”

APP2021 will also host a team of Australia’s sporting legends, including Olympians Anna Meares OAM, Steven Bradbury OAM, Giaan Rooney OAM, former Australian Iron Man and surf lifesaving champion Guy Leech, former Australian Cricket Captain Michael Clarke AO, and premiership-winning Brisbane Lions player Simon Black.

“APP2021 attendees will get a lot out of hearing from these sporting stars, including inspirational stories from Michael Clarke, Anna Meares and Steven Bradbury on overcoming incredible challenges and injury on their way to Olympic gold,” says Mr Sclavos.

“We’ll also have Olympic Gold Medalist and two-time World Champion hurdler Sally Pearson OAM, who will be sharing her wealth of nutritional knowledge thanks to Nature’s Own BodySmart Team.”

“There will be something for everyone at APP2021, and there’s still time to register to make sure you get to hear from these amazing speakers. See you at APP on the Gold Coast.”
