ISHA Educational Webinar and AGM 2022

Despite Storm Eunice, the ISHA annual conference 2022 (online event) hosted by UCD Student Health Services and sponsored by Consilienthealth.ie was a great success, and well attended by colleagues working in Student Health Services across the country, and in the UK. We were delighted to have Minister Simon Harris address our members by video link, and acknowledge the huge commitment and very important work being carried out by staff in 3rd level student health centres nationally, and the excellent services being provided for students. Special thanks to the guest speakers who presented at the ISHA conference, Dr. Michele Hill, Ruairí Power, Dr. Deirdre Lundy, Professor Patrick Wall and Hazel Travers.
