This session on Wednesday morning was entertaining and informative. 

It outlined that health promotion is imperitive and very effective in the music/concert arena, sporting events as well as online via dating sites and various other informative websites. Great results have come from increasing accessibility and anonymity of access to both education and screening tools. 

The importance of clinicians and educators utilising an 'as required' method of health promotion and screening programs rather than a blanket, one size sits all approach was emphasized.

Very interesting to hear about various communities and audiences success rates with their various approaches. 

Thank you to all of the passionate presenters!
