Because of her we can!

Northern Health celebrated our Indigenous community during NAIDOC Week with an exhibition in the foyer of Northern Hospital Epping throughout the week and a special event held on Wednesday, 11 July.

This year’s NAIDOC theme is ‘Because of her, we can!’ and the audience heard from a number of local Aboriginal women about the strong women who have inspired and influenced their lives.

Northern Health Chief Executive, Siva Sivarajah, said NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to celebrate our cultural diversity and this year, to acknowledge the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

“Northern Health is committed to providing holistic and culturally appropriate services, improving health and wellbeing and strengthening connections with our diverse community.”
