Students from schools all over South-East Queensland gather annually to showcase their work at the Go Health Go Griffith Health and Exercise Science Conference.
Held at the Gold Coast campus, the event is a chance for over 150 Year 12 students to discuss their health or exercise science projects and exchange ideas regarding higher education at Griffith.
Louise Ryan, a student from St Ursula’s College in Toowoomba, said she had recently visited Griffith and was impressed with what it has to offer.
“We came along on a school trip to visit the Griffith Health facilities and were really blown away with the anatomy and pathology learning centre, the lecture theatres and the great laboratories,” she said.
“I am now really keen to get onto a program such as Public Health or Nursing at Griffith.”
The event was also a chance to hear from Griffith researchers such as Dr Chris Irwin from Menzies Health Institute Queensland who profiled his recent work on the hazards of eating while driving.
“This is a great event that really gives students an insight into the broad range of research that is undertaken at Griffith. It also fuels further interest and opportunities for inquiring minds.”
