Kick start a champion for change: building the next generation of Indigenous Australian scientists and health researchers

Date posted: 25 November 2013

Kick start a champion for change, an initiative of Menzies School of Health Research, is aiming to build the next generation of Indigenous Australians to take up careers in health research and science. Indigenous health professionals intimately understand the needs of their communities and face fewer cultural barriers in the provision of health services, resulting in far better health care outcomes.

Kick start a champion for change involves committing to provide a traineeship to a young Indigenous Australian. In 2014 the scholarship will be in child health. However as the costs of the traineeship are significant, around $30,000, Menzies is calling on the public to contribute to making this possible for an Indigenous Australian student, with Menzies covering half the cost of the traineeship.

This traineeship will provide the recipient with a fantastic opportunity, and the communities themselves will have the chance to benefit from appropriate care.
