Conference Volunteers

The ISA2015 Volunteer Program puts you right in the middle of all of the action with full conference access, and deep into a network of fellow volunteers who, just like you, are inspired to be at the forefront of research in preventable stillbirth.

As a Volunteer, you will help support the conference and have the opportunity to meet and learn from healthcare professionals, creators, educators, families and each other. Volunteers who demonstrate leadership, service and a passion for research based participation are encouraged to apply!

This experience is available to anyone that is at least 18 years of age (on or before 1 October 2015). Those qualified can apply to volunteer for at minimum 4 hours (approximately) during the conference. All applicants are eligible for a free conference pass for the day.

Don’t miss out on your chance to experience all that you can discover from the synergism of ideas spanning research and care. Become a Volunteer in 2015.
