The perspectives and voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People that relate to food and nutrition play an essential role in self-determination and present and future capacity to create and design healthy food lifestyles for our people, family and communities. In this webinar, we will discuss the results of our 2021 paper Concerns and priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples regarding food and nutrition: a systematic review of qualitative evidence.

Following this we will go into a bit of integration in nutrition and broader clinical practice within the Yorta Yorta and then wider Victoria context, touching more so on some of the personal experiences Troy has had through working with his local and statewide community as a health practitioner for over ten years. This aspect of the talk is also open to the floor for some Q&A about practice life and any potential advice Troy may be able to assist with.
