ABOUT OUR RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT WORK
Central Highlands Healthcare (CHH)—the organisation behind Emerald Medical Group—was established to benefit the health and welfare of the community in the Central Highlands region. But our dedication to health goes well beyond supplying quality primary care. We’ve partnered with Central Queensland University (CQ University) on two new health research projects that align with our vision of “Better Healthcare”.
CHH and CQ University each contribute cash and in-kind support to fund research designed to improve the health of people living in the Central Highlands or to improve the standards of care provided by local doctors and allied health practitioners.
Funding and supporting research projects in our local region may one-day make a difference at a national or international level:
THESE PROJECTS SHOW HOW LOCAL RURAL COMMUNITIES CAN TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND AIM TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITHOUT HANDOUTS FROM GOVERNMENT OR BIG BUSINESS,
