'Share Your Story': Personal Reflections: ‘Ngurrampaa – Tjukurpa’ by Colin Moore
In this interview for Share Your Story, Colin shares his journey from NSW to Central Australia and the importance of culture to his work in Indigenous eye health. Central to this are relationships and respect, including between people and place.
The story of Colin offers insight into the experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in the professional health workforce, working across the two worlds to deliver better health outcomes. These stories are important to document and share, so we can better support and strengthen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people currently working in various health related roles, as well as to improve cultural safety of non-Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander organisations in the eye health sector, and the health sector more broadly.
