2021 PATHA Symposium


New PATHA membership applications will not be sent for approval between 21 Sept and Sun 26 September. This means new registrants on Tuesday and Wednesday (for both the symposium and training day) will need to register under non-member rates if they are not already PATHA members. Do get in touch if there are any issue: symposium@patha.nz.

The 2021 PATHA Symposium will bring people together to showcase the latest knowledge, research, and clinical practice for transgender health in Aotearoa New Zealand.  It will be held virtually due to current uncertainty about COVID-19 alert level.

Since the PATHA Symposium and Training Day has moved virtual and we have clarity on our costs, we are able to save on some costs and host more delegates virtually. This means we have been able to reduce our fees for registration by 40%.

Please consider registering if you haven't already, and help encourage registrations by sharing this information in your networks.
