We'd like to introduce one of several Australian First Peoples' health professionals on our Board of Directors - Karinda Taylor
Karinda is a Wamba Wamba woman from Swan Hill. As a registered nurse and midwife Karinda is an experienced and committed health professional who believes connection to culture, kin and a sense of belonging are vital to overall health and wellbeing. With over fifteen years experience in Aboriginal health, Karinda has worked in various clinical, strategic leadership and management roles across ACCHOs, state government and public health care services. As a Senior Lecturer in Indigenous Health at Monash University Karinda aims to support current and future health professionals to build a strong culturally safe workforce that is meaningfully committed to closing the health gap.
