July 2019 – Aboriginal Health

In July we asked about health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We also commenced a regional Aboriginal Health Plan with the Murrumbidgee Aboriginal Health Consortium.

In response to what is important about health we heard that living healthier with timely access to and regular follow up from services are important.

To improve health and wellbeing it was suggested that access to gym and individual exercise classes would be helpful.

In addition educational material that were easy to understand were things that could improve health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
