Three Rivers UDRH recognises the health issues that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people face, and the importance of improving our Indigenous rural health workforce. We offer support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students on their academic journeys to becoming successful health professionals. Together, we can help ‘close the gap’ and achieve better health outcomes for Indigenous communities.
