Multiple success for MCH team at perinatal conference

Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand (PSANZ) held its annual congress on the Gold Coast in March.

There were a large number of abstracts presented by our Women’s and Newborn Program, showcasing excellence in research and innovation, as well as our close collaboration with the Ritchie Centre and other research partners.
