The day was opened with a performance from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, the Bundjalung Kunjail Dance Troupe. This inspiring welcome set the scene for a plethora of incredible speakers from a range of health and community backgrounds, including Dr Chris Perry (ENT surgeon), Matthew Brown (Director of the Deadly Ears Program), Dr Janie Smith (Associate Professor at Bond University), Dr Natasha Coventry (Medical Superintendent from Cooktown), Tim Rowe (Indigenous Marathon Project), Paul Pholeros (Health Habitat) and Dr Stephen Godfrey (Ophthalmologist and volunteer with IRIS). Break-out sessions in the afternoon featured “hands-on” sessions including ear and eye examination techniques and boomerang painting.
