Warren Snowdon shaves trademark mo for Indigenous health

The Minister for Indigenous Health, Warren Snowdon, has had no choice but to shave off his trademark moustache after Queensland's peak Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health body raised $10,000 for Movember.

Last month Mr Snowdon accepted a challenge from the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC), to face the razor if their team produced $10,000 in donations.

Called IUIH MoBros, the team featured sports stars Steve Renouf and Ian Lacey, and QAIHC's CEO Selwyn Button.

'While I foolishly took on this group, and I'll lose my whiskers, I'm pleased that $10,110 had been raised to help lift the profile of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male health,' Mr Snowdon said.
