Event description

Description

Launch of partnership between One Village and SNAICC. This presentation will be headlined with an introduction by the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and islander Child Care (SNAICC), about the exciting new partnership with One Village, with generous support from Gandel Philanthropic.

Professor Gracelyn Smallwood is professor of Nursing and Midwifery and Community Engagement at Central Queensland University. She is a proud Birrigubba, Kalkadoon and South Sea Islander woman, who in 1972 became one of the first Aboriginal women to be registered as a nurse and later midwife, and was the first Aboriginal Australian to receive a Masters of Science in Public Health. She has worked with the World Health Organisation, was awarded National Aboriginal of the Year, has an Order of Australia, and an astonishing list of other awards and achievements to her name. In spite of this, she is down to earth, shares her knowledge freely and is a highly engaging and relatable speaker, who we are delighted to welcome to Shepparton to talk to us about what local child and family services could be doing to engage, and to effectively retain engagement with, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.

Professor Gracelyn Smallwood will be discussing what we can do to Close the Gap in engagement in services
