NSLHD celebrated NAIDOC Week this month with events across all of our facilities.

Royal North Shore hosted Pindarri dancer Kyle Freeman, Kiris An Taran Dance Troupe and special guest Christine Anu.

The event attracted a large crowd of staff, patients, visitors and children from the childcare centre as this year’s NAIDOC Week honours Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with the theme of "Because of Her, We Can."

It included the inaugural Aboriginal Health Hall of Fame launch, with lison White, Jessica Birk, Susie Broughton and Sue Pinckham the first inductees.

Staff, visitors and members of the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai community lent a hand to help finish a mural designed by Aboriginal artist Jessica Johnson.

The brightly-coloured mural can be seen at the GP clinic on Derby Rd and will now be a talking point for visitors.
