This subject introduces students to the foundations of Indigenous health and wellbeing, with a focus on contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's perspectives. Students examine cultural, historical, structural and social determinants of Indigenous wellbeing. Students also engage in experiential learning with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members to build knowledge and develop skills for strengths-based communication for Indigenous health and wellbeing advocacy.
