National Talkblack 241120

We had:

Harold Mitchell Professor of Indigenous Eye Health and ophthalmologist Hugh Taylor discussing what needs to be done to guarantee equity when it comes to eye health beyond 2020. Professor Taylor is calling for further funding to meet the population-based needs and provide accessible, affordable services and equity in eye care. This is one area where the gap can be closed and by doing so not only eliminate unnecessary blindness but also demonstrate how to improve the provision of specialist health services in cooperation with the community-controlled sector.

Steve Renouf, Consumer Advocate, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Champion and Co-Chair of the Agency’s Reconciliations Working Group talking about how the Australian Digital Health Agency joined the Reconciliation Action Plan Program.

Alison Mahony from the Australian Royal Life Saving discussing th Keep Watch initiative which is promoting to Indigenous parents and carers that active supervision of children when they are in and around water is vital.

Tiarnie Mueller from Outdoor Solutions Queensland yarning about how they started their business and how they are moving forward into the future.
