The 2017 National Indigenous Allied Health Awards was held in conjunction with the IAHA National Gala Dinner. The Awards recognise the contribution of IAHA members make in improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The night began with a beautiful and heartfelt Welcome to Country by Whudjuk elder Nigel Wilkes before he and the Mungart Yonga Traditional Dance Group shared their stories and dances with delegates.
