National Talkblack 290920

We had:

Associate Professor Mireille Lahoud from the Monash University Biomedicine Discovery Institute discussing how they have adapted new cancer and pan-influenza vaccine technology to developing a COVID-19 vaccine targeted for the elderly.

Sue-Anne Hunter talking about her new appointment as the new co-char of Family Matters, Australia’s national campaign to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people grow up in family, community and culture.

UNSW Emeritus Professor Richard Hugman discussing how it is time to stop treating elderly people as objects. The dramatic increase in COVID-19 deaths in Australia’s aged care homes begs the ethics around our treatment of people in aged care he says. In less than four months, deaths from COVID-19 in aged care have increased from 28 to 580, at the time of writing.
