National Talkblack 111022

We had:

Professor Josh Francis Menzies School of Health Research and Jade Neave, Indigenous Health Worker, talking about training remote health workers to diagnose rheumatic heart disease. A new study to improve access to culturally safe, best quality care for Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) in high-burden Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities is underway after a Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Cardiovascular Health Mission Grant application was successful.

Kristine Falzon, Chair of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander expert reference group for Our Mob and Cancer, talking about new hub of information launched for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities affected by cancer. Our Mob and Cancer, a new dedicated website on cancer developed by and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer, was launched by Assistant Minister for Health, Senator Malarndirri McCarthy.
