AIDS 2014 Connecting school Program Workshop for high school students 20-24 July

This year, Melbourne is hosting the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014). AIDS 2014 is the world’s largest health conference, and it is the first time the event is being held in Australia. Designed to unite leading scientists, health care professionals, policy makers, community organisations and people living with HIV, an estimated 15,000 delegates are expected to attend. The theme of AIDS 2014 is 'Stepping up the Pace' and accordingly, the International AIDS conference will emphasise moving towards an HIV/AIDS-free generation. Importantly, there has been a strong focus placed on global youth, recognising that such a massive task cannot be achieved without youth empowerment and leadership.

Participants sought: neuroscience research on enhancing memory

The Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) are investigating a safe and non-invasive brain stimulation technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS uses magnetic pulses to stimulate a small area on the surface of the brain. MAPrc researches are investigating whether giving a few minutes of TMS to different brain regions can enhance memory. Volunteers aged between 18 and 55 who have no history of mental or neurological illness are needed! Participation involves four visits to MAPrc in Prahran. Each visit will take two to three hours and involve some cognitive activities, non-invasive brain stimulation and an EEG recording of your brain waves. You will be compensated $30 per visit for your time and travel costs. Enquiries: Ms Ting Ting Cao on 9076 6564 or at tingting.cao@monash.edu. Study link.

Participants sought: Contraceptive experiences of women with psychosis

Every woman has individual views on and attitudes to contraception. MAPrc researchers are interested in looking at the issues faced by women with diagnosed #schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder, and how these may differ from issues faced by women with no mental illness diagnosis. The study involves a one-off interview taking from between 45 to 90 minutes. We are looking for women aged between 19 and 40 years, who have either a diagnosis of #schizophrenia / schizoaffective disorder or no mental illness (for the control group) and have used some form of contraception in the last 12 months. If you are willing to share your experiences with contraceptive use please contact Georgia Walter for more information. Email: gawal5@student.monash.edu Ph: (03) 9076 6564
