How will I contribute to improving Indigenous health as a qualified medical practitioner or health worker?
As a registered nurse, I envisage the opportunity to work within my community to promote the importance of achieving and maintaining good health across the lifespan. I have a particular interest in community health and the delivery of health education within our indigenous communities. To achieve this, I have plans to further my education into postgraduate studies in midwifery and health promotion.
Creating, promoting and implementing health programs that cater specifically to the community, to be run by community members. Indigenous health can be improved by healthcare professionals being actively involved in the community and working together to improve risk factors associated with poor health.
Empowering our indigenous communities from within to overcome the daily challenges faced in achieving good health.
