Proud in culture, strong in spirit: celebrating National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Children's Day
You are invited to #GeorgeTalks webinar on Proud in culture, strong in spirit: celebrating National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Children's Day

Join us to hear from:
• Dr. Janine Mohamed, CEO of the Lowitja Institute
• Dr. Julieann Coombes, Research Fellow in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Program at The George Institute.

Moderated by Prof. Bruce Neal, Executive Director of The George Institute.

Dr. Mohamed will outline the importance of services in providing cultural connection, and the key role of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce in the safety and wellbeing of children and families. Dr. Coombes will share her work, ‘Safe Pathways’- a quality improvement and partnership approach to discharge planning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children following burn injury. A facilitated conversation will follow the presentations.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities have provided love and care for their children for thousands of generations. Safety, wellbeing and development are closely linked to the strengths of connections with family, community, culture, language, and Country.

National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day (Children’s Day) is an annual day celebrated across the country each year on 4 August. Established in 1988, Children’s Day is a time Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities and all Australians, to celebrate the strengths and cultures of children. This day offers us an opportunity to show support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families, as well as learn about the crucial impact that culture, family and community play in the lives of every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child. Children’s Day is an initiative of the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC) - the national peak body for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and family services.
