On January 23rd Poche Centre NT was pleased to announce the launch of a new series of lunchtime seminars that will provide a forum for new ideas and insights from Indigenous researchers, academics, health professionals and community leaders, working to improve the health and well-being of Indigenous people.
The Seminars are scheduled for the first Thursday of every month throughout 2017 and they will be available live and on demand on the following link:
In February, the first seminar was presented by Maree Meredith on the health benefits of art centres in the NPY Lands. This presentation summarised findings from Maree’s PhD research finalised in 2016.
In March Dr. John Gilroy will present his research into disabilities in adults and children in Central Australia.
In May, Mr. Geoff Angeles’ seminar will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the “Yes” vote in the 1967 referendum where he will examine the significance for Indigenous people today.
The Seminar Series was also publicised with an article in the Centralian Advocate on 17th January 2017.
