A number of IAHA members have rallied together to promote allied health careers at the 2017 Yabun Festival. The Yabun Festival is an annual event held on the 26th January which continues the tradition of survival day gatherings.

“It was an amazing event to be a part of, it’s a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, resilience and success in all areas, held in the heart of Sydney,” said Kooma woman and social work student Nellie Pollard-Wharton, who organised an IAHA stall at the event.

“Being able to represent IAHA in such a positive space was such an enjoyable and empowering experience.  We met some fantastic people who had attended an IAHA forum or conference in the past, as well as passionate Indigenous professionals in the allied health world that were very excited to become a part of IAHA in the future,” said Nellie. “For a first time experience, I couldn’t be happier, and I look forward to doing it again.”

IAHA would like to thank our members Nellie, Will, Tiarnee, Nicola, Gabe and Cohen for volunteering their time to hold an IAHA stall. We value your commitment and enthusiasm.
