Episode 22: World Health Day 2020. Tameka O’Donnell from the NSWALC Youth Advisory Committee discusses health, COVID-19 and why she became a nurse.

Welcome back to “A Cuppa and A Yarn” brought to you by the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council.

Nurses and midwives are in the spotlight for World Health Day 2020, as the world is urged to recognise their vital ongoing work, now more than ever.

In Australia, there are around 3,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives, and 25-year-old Tameka O’Donnell is one of them.

This episode she speaks with host Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove about her work at the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council, the NSWALC Youth Advisory Committee, and staying safe in a pandemic.
