Coming up on today’s program:

•  Late last week, medical experts and health workers from across the country gathered in Mbantua Alice Springs. Today we are going to hear some of the conversations that took place at the 2019 Close the Gap in Eye Health National Conference

 •  We also head down to Tasmania to hear about shell stringing and its importance to Aboriginal communities in the State. These shell necklaces are featuring in an exhibition in Sydney, as it travels across Australia.

• The CEO and founder of the Uncle Jimmy Thumbs Up Program, which aims to improve the health and nutrition of Aboriginal people through education discusses their app and the 2019 Close the Gap in Eye Health National Conference.
