Online Event - Indigenous Health... Eliminating the Gap

June 29, 2020


Join the team from Hunter Medical Research Institute for their next exciting and interactive virtual event and gain an insight into the importance and urgency of eliminating the gap in Indigenous health and the work being done here in the Hunter to benefit communities nationwide.

July 9, 2020 – 6pm to 7pm
MC’ed by Wiradjuri woman and HMRI researcher Dr Michelle Bovill, the event will explore the link between health and education outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Worimi man, Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon and HMRI researcher Associate Professor Kelvin Kong will talk about the vital work he's doing in ear health for Indigenous kids. Otitis media is a middle ear infection that disproportionately impacts Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. In remote Indigenous communities, 86% of children under three have had some form of otitis media.

You'll also hear from Wiradjuri man and education leader, Nathan Towney – Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Indigenous Strategy and Leadership at the University of Newcastle. Nathan will speak about the vital role education plays in eliminating the gap and improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
