On behalf of the Hunter Postgraduate Medical Institute, I wish to invite you to attend our 14th Annual Health Care Professionals’ Conference and Exhibition which will be held at the Newcastle Exhibition and Convention Centre (NEX), Newcastle West on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 August 2022.

What a crazy time we have all had over the past few years! Here is a perfect opportunity to network in a safe environment with your colleagues.

The main theme of this year's conference is OBESITY.

This year we will be live streaming most sessions so people who cannot attend in person can still benefit from this educational weekend. This means that the sessions will also be recorded and these sessions will be available to registrants for a few weeks after the conference. After this period only the sessions that we have permission from the presenters will be uploaded to the HPMI educational site.

There will be an opportunity to do an Obesity Accredited Activity during the weekend. You must complete a predisposing activity, a reinforcing activity and attend at least 5 sessions marked as Accredited Activity Sessions in the Obesity Stream. The Accredited Activity is only available to those who are physically attending over the weekend.
