The hard work and commitment to community demonstrated by the team that runs the Aboriginal community foodies program was recognised at the 2011 South Australia (SA) Health Awards this week.
Port Augusta Community Health was a joint winner of the Improving Community Wellbeing Award for its Aboriginal community foodies program, also known as Outback community foodies. Since 2008, Port Augusta Community Health, in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctors Service, OPAL and various outback communities, and with the support of Community Foodies SA, has worked to deliver a culturally appropriate program to increase the reach of health and nutrition messages to Aboriginal communities in remote SA.
The SA Health Awards are designed to recognise and reward individuals, teams, programs or projects that have significantly improved the delivery of health services to the South Australian community. They also honour the commitment of those who work to improve the performance of the public health sector.
