Allied Health Assistant (AHA) Day 2023
AHA Day 2023 will be livestreamed via WebEx Events on Wednesday, 15 November between 9.00am – 4.30pm AEDT.
The theme of this year’s event will be:
The Challenge of Change and Progress
When it comes to change and progress, we often like to focus on impressive data and successful outcomes. At this year’s AHA Day, we want to continue celebrating this AND also shine a light on the challenges and imperfections that are an inevitable part of the journey. We hope the AHA workforce will be inspired to be leaders of excellence and improvement, with reassurance and encouragement that many have walked that bumpy road before.
Registrations are now OPEN via our Eventbrite page. Registrations will close at 11.59pm on Sunday 12 November.

We are excited to announce another highly decorated keynote speaker for our event, Professor Lorimer Moseley AO.

He is highly regarded in his field with over 400 research articles, 7 books, TEDx talks with over 1M+ views, honours/prizes from governments/societies in 14 countries and awarded Australia’s most prestigious prize for innovation and potential transformation in medical health research.
In 2020, he was made an Officer of the Order of Australia for ‘distinguished service to humanity at large in the fields of pain and its management, science communication, medical and health education and physiotherapy’.
We look forward to Professor Moseley speaking to our audience on progressing towards less chronic pain and its challenges and opportunities.
Lucas Patchett from Orange Sky
On a mission to improve hygiene standards for the 122,000 people experiencing homelessness across Australia, Nicholas Marchesi and Lucas Patchett stumbled on something much bigger and more significant – the power of a conversation.
Orange Sky now operates 56 services across 34 locations in Australia and 5 services across 3 locations in New Zealand, with continued expansion across both countries. The focus is on creating a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment for people who are too often ignored or feel disconnected from the community.
Since 2014, Orange Sky has provided more than 238,000 loads of free laundry, over 25,000 warm, safe showers, and more than 370,000 hours of genuine and non-judgemental conversation.
Innovation is in the DNA of Orange Sky, with the organisation prioritising delivering on its mission through continually evolving its service offerings. In 2022, Orange Sky was awarded the Financial Review’s Best CSR Innovation Award and the Most Innovative Government, Education & Not-for-Profit Company off the back of the Waru Dryer, and previously received a Google Impact Challenge Grant to build upon ‘Volaby’ – their purpose-built volunteer software aimed at improving the volunteer lifecycle. ‘Volaby’ supports charities across the world to innovate, make data-driven decisions, and harness technology for good.
Orange Sky, under the leadership of Nic and Lucas, are committed to delivering on Orange Sky’s 2025 vision to help more than 40,000 people.
