Description

The Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW (AHMRC) and the Australian Diabetes Council (ADC) in consultation with the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services in NSW have developed a DVD called Feel good: eat healthy tucker and move more everyday.

The DVD provides tips for Aboriginal communities on eating healthier and finding ways to move more everyday. It showcases healthy lifestyle programs that are currently running at two Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services - Tharawal Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS) in Campbelltown and Galambila Aboriginal Health Service (AHS) in Coffs Harbour.

The first segment 'Feel good with healthy tucker' was filmed with participants of the community kitchen program at Tharawal AMS with celebrity chef Mark Olive. The second segment 'Move more everyday' was filmed with Australian futsal player Lachlan Wright and participants of the Spring into shape program at Galambila AHS.

Highlighting the participants' practical tips on eating healthier and how to become more active everyday on the DVD are positive steps towards achieving healthier lifestyles and preventing Type II diabetes for Aboriginal communities.

Each package includes:
