National Talkblack 240920

We had:

Fiona Petersen, The Healing Foundation CEO discussing how they are supporting calls from Health Ministers and health organisations for people to maintain their regular health checks during the COVID-19 pandemic. She says that “regular health checks are vital for the most vulnerable in the community, which includes Stolen Generations survivors.”

Dr Angela Dos Santos, Australia’s first Aboriginal neurologist and a proud Kweiamble and Gumbaynggirr Woman talking about how the Australian Stroke Alliance is campaigning to take world-first urgent treatment to stroke patients – in ambulance helicopters and aircraft, as well as road ambulances.

Amandine Denis Ryan, ClimateWorks Australia Head of National Programs discussing how the superannuation sector efforts to address climate change risks are accelerating in Australia, according to a new report about Australia’s 20 largest licensed funds.

Dr Ruth Balint, Convenor of History and Area Studies, School of Humanities and Languages at the UNSW talking about how her and a fellow academic are on a quest to unearth Holocaust stories more Australians can relate to as survivors pass away.
