This Blueprint for Action is intended to improve the health and life expectancy of our people by outlining how we can work together to increase the size and capacity of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce.
Journeys into Medicine volume 2 aims to inform and share the stories of AIDA’s Indigenous doctors and medical students with a wide audience both within and outside of the medical industry. Our goal when creating a second volume was to inspire Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to pursue a career within the health industry
The first edition of our book Journeys into Medicine was launched by the Hon Warren Snowdon, Minister for Indigenous Health, Rural and Regional Health and Regional Services Delivery at the 2009 AIDA conference in Brisbane. The publication profiles 15 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors and five students. Order a physical copy through our online store.
