The Skills, Employment and Careers Expo held in Alice Springs on 13th -14th August included a booth by the Central Australian Remote and Aboriginal Health Club (CARAH) which is administered by Centre for Remote Health. Attendees ranged from primary and high school students, parents, school leavers, trades schools and job seekers.
The CARAH booth was manned by Acting President Allison Gray and health students on placement in Alice Springs. They discussed options designed to assist students in attending university including scholarship, academic and networking opportunities. Local health practitioners were also available to showcase pharmacy, medical science, radiology and physiotherapy professions, with expo participants testing out TheraBands, sphygmomanometers, stethoscopes, reflex hammers and doppler machines.
Thanks to Danny, Tushar, Patrick, Pippa, Steph, Chris, Jenny, Nick and Annie for dedicating their time to inspire the next generation of health professionals.
The expo continues in Tennant Creek, Nhulunbuy, Katherine and Darwin.
