PUBLIC LECTURE: Friends of UWA Sandwich Seminar
|Friends of UWA Sandwich Seminar : Death, Stress and Change in a Remote Aboriginal Community
Professor Victoria Burbank will outline the experiences that accompany the considerable mortality gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. She will share some of the history of people living in the remote Arnhem Land community of Numbulwar. Her research has identified the physical and social aspects of the environment that stress and otherwise compromise mothers and their children. In this talk Professor Burbank will discuss the manner in which environmental factors may have intergenerational consequences for health.
