National Talk Black 190124

We had:

Prof. Isabelle Jalbert yarning about “Is too much screen time bad for our eyes” As evidence shows that the incidence of myopia (short-sightedness) is on the rise. Optometrists worldwide have also noted a myopia epidemic among children – something that genetics alone can’t explain. In fact, at current rates, half of the world will be near-sighted by 2050.

Professor James Ward is a Pitjantjatjara and Nukunu man, and a national leader in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research. He is currently the Director of the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health at the University of Queensland and will be yarning about “New grant launches to champion health equity for Indigenous communities”.
