2018 Healthy Start UQ Training Workshop
Healthy Start is a preventative health education project run by HOPE4HEALTH (Griffith), M.A.D. (Bond), and TIME (UQ) . We work with newly arrived refugees in order to increase their health literacy and help them settle into Australia. Topics you will help facilitate include general health, nutrition, women's and men's health, medications, and the Australian healthcare system.
Dr. Rebecca Farley (GP Refugee Health Clinical Lead for Brisbane North PHN and Senior Medical Officer at the Mater Refugee Complex Care Clinic) will be speaking on the night about refugee health.
In order to attend and volunteer at the upcoming Healthy Start Sessions, you will need to have completed a Volunteer Training Workshop! This is an incredible opportunity to practice showing culturally sensitive care to people from a refugee background and learn to deliver health information with an interpreter. Don't miss the chance to be directly involved in the health education of those who find it hardest to access our healthcare system.
Free pizzas will be provided on the night!
