East Arnhem Health Partnership Symposium
A two day health symposium is scheduled to be held on the 22nd and 23rd of June at the Gulkula site, home of the Garma festival, 30 minutes from the East Arnhem community of Nhulunbuy. The East Arnhem Health Partnership Symposium is a collaboration between NT Primary Health Network, HOT NORTH, Miwatj Health, Menzies School of Health Research, and the NT Government.
The symposium will focus on regional interests such as Yolŋu and Anindilyakwa understandings of health and what health means from Yolŋu and Anindilyakwa perspectives, workforce development, health leadership, men’s and women’s health and the transition of services and integration between the NT Government and Aboriginal Community Controlled health organisations. Additionally, there will be presentations from experts in the field on diabetes, rheumatic heart disease, and birthing on country.
The symposium is open to regional health professionals from a range of disciplines, including Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal health workers and practitioners, doctors, nurses, midwives, remote health professionals, researchers and allied health professionals. You will hear from health consumers as well as your colleagues in the region. If you’d be interested in attending, please register here.
