Flinders University recently received a generous donation from philanthropist Mr Greg Poche AO to establish two Poche Centres of Indigenous Health, one in Alice Springs and the other in Adelaide.
The Poche Centre of Indigenous Health in Alice Springs is led by Professor Della Yarnold .
This Centre will build on our existing strengths in Central Australia and will increase the number of Indigenous students studying medicine, nursing and other health profession courses, further develop the skills of the non-Indigenous health workforce, lead research into Indigenous health, and improve training in cross-cultural communication skills. The centre will work with Indigenous leaders in developing appropriate education programs.
Current Poche Centre staff are:
