Indigenous Futures Lead Dr Lynore Geia #IHMayDay Indigenous Health Tweet Fest - 1 May

The final #IHMayDay program for tomorrow (Thursday 1st May) has been posted on the Croakey Blog site (extract following):

As previously covered at Croakey, this Thursday (tomorrow) has been declared a day of action and listening on Twitter on all matters to do with the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  Croakey readers are invited to follow the discussions at #IHMayDay. Also@Croakeyblog will aim to provide thorough Twitter coverage, and will only be RT-ing tweets carrying the hashtag #IHMayDay tomorrow.  The idea is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to share their views and knowledge about some of the wide-ranging issues affecting health, and for non-Indigenous people to participate by RT-ing and listening.  The event is timely given predicted cuts to Indigenous programs predicted for the Federal Budget.  The day’s discussions will be moderated by James Cook University nursing academic Dr Lynore Geia – who had the idea for the event and who is also tweeting this week for @IndigenousX (read more here in her profile at The Guardian).
