The third CRIAH Aboriginal Health Research Conference — Research for a Better Future — was held in May 2011 at Doltone House, Sydney.

The CRIAH conference is an initiative of the Coalition for Research to Improve Aboriginal Health, a partnership between the Sax Institute and the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW.

More than 300 people attended the conference including researchers, policy makers and service providers. The conference was opened by Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, Governor of NSW, and presenters included Ms Pat Anderson, Chair of the Lowitja Institute and Professor Ezra Susser, an epidemiologist and psychiatrist from Columbia University New York.

The conference showcased important work being done in the areas of mental health, child health, adult health and chronic disease, not just in remote parts of Australia, but also in urban areas, where many Aboriginal people live.
