Three events combined, one ticket, endless potential

Building on two of the most successful health conferences in 2023, the 2024 Essential Health Summit promises to provide you with three events combined, one ticket and endless potential.


The Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) and The Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM) have combined forces to deliver an unforgettable experience for delegates by merging the Festival of Nursing and Lifestyle Medicine conference into one cohesive event – the Essential Health Summit. In addition, 2024 will see the inaugural, Primary Health Care Congress which will bring together leaders from across primary health care. 


Experience the ultimate event for health and well-being professionals. The Essential Health Summit will provide three days of dynamic presentations, interactive workshops and inspiring talks. Joint plenaries will sit alongside specialised sessions allowing you to curate your experience across the three events. Hear from renowned speakers, take part in insightful discussions covering the latest developments in health and lifestyle medicine, and explore cutting-edge products and services from exhibitors in the healthcare and the lifestyle medicine industry.
