12.30-1.30pm, Wed 14th February 2018
Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton
Professor Sandra Eades, Associate Dean (Indigenous), Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, The University of Melbourne; with two of her research team’s members: Dr Lina Gubhaju and Dr Bridgette McNamara
A healthy start to life is essential for life-long health. Currently, Aboriginal children (0-5 years) and adolescents (10-24 years) suffer greater morbidity and mortality than non-Aboriginal Australians. Importantly, a large proportion of the excess burden of morbidity experienced by Aboriginal children and adolescents is potentially preventable. Therefore, the major aim of the research program of Professor Eades’ team is to identify the individual, family and community level factors associated with health and wellbeing, which will be essential to devise solutions to significantly improve health of Aboriginal people at a population level.
