The Southern Queensland Centre of Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care provides critical primary health care services and promotes health, wellbeing and disease prevention. The centre is staffed by GPs, nurses, allied health, Aboriginal health workers and visiting medical specialists.
The Community Jury for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research is a fundamental component of the SQCOE research program. Established in 2010 and first convened by Associate Prof. Chelsea Watego, Munanjahli and South Sea Islander woman, the Community Jury is the first research jury in Australia.
Health professionals will receive training on how to provide culturally-appropriate healthy-lifestyle advice to their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients with the launch of the B.strong training program.
