How will I contribute to improving Indigenous health as a qualified medical practitioner or health worker?

My aspiration is to research and explore the health of Aboriginal Communities: especially within the realms of nutrition, bush medicine and traditional practices around Indigenous approaches to mental health.   As a current service member within the Defence Forces, I am also extremely keen to promote Indigenous recruiting within Defence Health.   Defence Health currently has an outreach program that provides Indigenous health promotion and support to rural communities.
