The Strong culture: a road to good health resources were developed to assist teachers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and other community workers in engaging young Aboriginal people in diabetes prevention messages. The resources are part of the Strong culture: a road to good health program developed and trialed in Northam, Western Australia (WA). The program links to the school curriculum, with an emphasis on health and physical education.
The resource package includes:
The DVD shows the process that was undertaken in Northam and is designed to provide other communities with ideas and suggestions for running a similar program.
The activities and resources in the package can be modified to meet the needs of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Diabetes WA offers small grants to schools and other community organisations to assist in the cost associated with delivering the Strong culture: a road to good health program.
