Fertility and preconception health promotion

What are you planning to do with your fellowship and how it will help your career?

The Jean Hailes Postdoctoral Travel Fellowship will be used to attend two conferences, the Annual scientific meeting of the Fertility Society of Australia held in Hobart and the 4th European Conference on Preconception Health held in Copenhagen, Denmark. These two events offer unique opportunities to present my work and also to connect with and establish collaborative relationships with other researchers in the field of fertility and preconception health promotion.
