We had:

Dr Gabrielle McCallum, Menzies School of Health research fellow and project lead talking about how learning about healthy lungs has just become a lot easier for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and health practitioners thanks to an expanded interactive app. The app, produced by the Menzies School of Health Research’s (Menzies) Child Health Division, uses interactive images, audio and quizzes to teach people about various conditions affecting the lungs and is available in eight different languages used in northern and central Australia. The Lung Health for Kids app is freely available on both Google Play and the Apple Store.

Delson Stokes, Lead Singer in The Yabu Band discussing how they will be releasing their sophomore single ‘Peacemaker’ this Survival Day. The uplifting track is the sophomore single from the band’s highly anticipated EP which is set to launch early this year. Yabu Band chose to release the appropriately titled single Peacemaker on Survival Day, as a way to acknowledge the past while simultaneously walking together towards a brighter future. “We need to remember the old way, but also walk the new way, which is towards unity and reconciliation.” Peacemaker will be available on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music and other popular streaming platforms from January 26, 2021. The full EP titled A Cry in the Wind will be released in early 2021.
