Galambila held it's inaugural Black Series Corporate Breakfast event 'First Time, First Place, First Peoples' with special guest speaker, Sol Bellear (AM), Chairperson of Redfern AMS. The purpose of the event was to increase understanding and knowledge with partnering organisations on evolving policies that have informed and formed the principles of self-determination that Aboriginal Community Control Health Organisations have been built upon.

Black Series Event

Uncle Sol spoke of the history of Redfern AMS and the limited resources back in the early days when the organisation was first established.  He highlighted how the first ever Aboriginal Health Worker training got started and posed a challenge for us to work together for localised solutions.  His insightfulness to the current political landscape and ways we will all need to adapt to meet future challenges through unity.

With an audience of approximately 40 people that were valued representatives of organisations that work closely with Galambila to increase health outcomes and overcome social disadvantage for Aboriginal people such as: Aboriginal Family Wellbeing Service, Werin Aboriginal Corporation, Bulgarr Ngaru Medical Aboriginal Corporation, North Coast Primary Health Network, Chess Employment, On Track all provided positive feedback and encouragement to continue with a Series of Guest Speakers talking about Aboriginal Affairs.

Words could not express the appreciation by the Board of Directors for Uncle Sol’s attendance at this special event who gave up his time freely.      

We humbly say Thank You
