GV Health joins in celebration

By Laura Briggs

The deep tones of a didgeridoo yesterday resonated through the Goulburn Valley Health building as NAIDOC Week approaches an end.

GV Health yesterday celebrated NAIDOC Week with a gathering of nearly 80 hospital staff.

The event included performances by the Dungala Dancers, speakers who addressed the topics of Aboriginal history and mental health and a cutting of the cake, followed by morning tea.

The event, held at Shepparton’s GV Health, was a positive finish to the week of celebrating and honouring the women of the Aboriginal community and the roles that each of them play in the lives of many.
