The Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation (GMRF) has launched its latest study investigating transition out of military service. The purpose of the study is to trial a questionnaire that will help assess reintegration and psychological adjustment to civilian life. We are seeking former members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) to complete an online survey about reintegration and mental health. The survey will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. To be eligible for participation, you are required to have served in the regular ADF and to have discharged between 2000-2018. We are also unable to recruit those who are currently hospitalised for a psychological condition at this time. There will be no cost or reimbursement associated with participation.

The 2018 NZDIA Forum is our 21st forum. We aim to bring together industry (local, regional and international) and a wider range of government interests than has been achieved previously. The NZDIA forum has, for 20 years, been the most important event on NZ soil for defence and industry to come together. This year we are creating the opportunity and space for a wider cross-section of the industry: local, Australasian and global with a broader interest in national security encompassing defence, to come together.  The speaking and workshop programme is coming together as we identify how best to deliver excellent value to our traditional constituency and new attendees.  There will be something for everyone in the programme, in the exhibition space and in the networking breaks.
