Professor Amanda Leach, Co-lead of the Menzies School of Health Research Hearing for Learning initiative telling us about how Menzies celebrated the first graduates of the initiative who have gained Certificate 2 training in Aboriginal Primary Health Care, and enhanced skills in detecting ear and hearing problems this month. Seven trainees completed the six-week course at Wurrumiyanga on the Tiwi Islands, this will allow the new graduates to provide local knowledge and expertise when checking the ears and hearing of children in their community.
