At the recent Tackling Indigenous Smoking National Conference in Darwin NT AHCSA's Uncle Harold Stewart, Uncle Trevor Wingard, and Tim Lawrence were recognised for the more than 5 years they have each given to the Tackling Indigenous Smoking campaign.
The three were called to the stage and presented with awards by Professor Tom Calma AO, as were fellow recipients Lee Laurie and Cyndi Cole of Nganampa Health Council Incorporated .
"It was awesome to be given this recognition," said a surprised Uncle Harold. "I am going to have this certificate framed.”
"I feel blessed to work on delivering these programs to our communities," commented Uncle Trevor, as Tim nodded in enthusiastic agreement.
The Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) team works to improve the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through education about the dangers of smoking and vaping, the largest modifiable risk factor affecting indigenous Australians.
We congratulate Uncle Harold, Uncle Trevor, and Tim for the recognition they have received, for their service to AHCSA, and and for their dedication to the cause of Aboriginal health.
