Northern Territory Epidemiology Group
Established in 2001, the Northern Territory epidemiology group (AEA NT) is the AEA Chapter for the Top End of the Northern Territory.
NTEG conducts occasional professional development activities for epidemiologists and biostatisticians. Lunchtime seminars are conducted at the Menzies School of Health Research, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus, Rockland Drive, Tiwi. Speakers come from a range of places, including the Centre for Disease Control, Menzies School of Health Research, Charles Darwin University and Health Gains Planning.
NTEG, in collaboration with other research bodies in the NT, also sponsors seminars by eminent visiting epidemiologist and biostatistians, and is interested in fostering multi-disciplinary research approaches to important health problems.
HOT NORTH (Improving Health Outcomes in the Tropical North: A multidisciplinary Collaboration) tackles enduring challenges by value-adding to established research collaborations, aiming to close the gap in Indigenous health disadvantage, to protect the north from emerging infectious threats and to engage regional neighbours.
