Description

This resource is a powerpoint presentation by Professor Kerin O'Dea, formerly of the Menzies School of Health Research. The powerpoint outlines the role of research partnerships in improving health service delivery and opportunities in the Northern Territory for further intersectoral work. It highlights historical methods of Aboriginal food gathering and how Indigenous diets have been modified over time, to influence the problem of chronic diseases in today's Indigenous societies. The Looma School canteen project shows how the primary intervention of providing nutritious lunches and breakfasts for school children has now become part of the school curriculum.
