The Southgate Institute will be co-hosting a pan-Indigenous Symposium ‘Health Services, Racism and Indigenous Health: Gaining Traction for Systemic Change’ on Thursday 21st November. This event is a collaboration with the Poche Networks for Indigenous Health (Flinders University and University of Sydney), and South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit. An exciting array of presenters from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Hawai’i, and Norway will discuss relevant research and best practice for addressing racism in health services from local, national and pan-Indigenous perspectives. Through individual and panel presentations, along with interactive sessions, participants will explore key issues and canvass likely avenues to pursue real change in health systems. The following day participants at an invited Roundtable will further pursue research, practice and advocacy priorities to tackle racism experienced by Indigenous people in health services.
