Charles Sturt University is proud to host the Ngangaanha Careers in Health Expo, which will open the minds of the city’s high school students to a career in the health industry.

The expo will feature exhibits from healthcare providers and educators, including Charles Sturt’s Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health (UDRH), Services Australia, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Aboriginal Employment Service, Primary Health Network, Orange Aboriginal Medical Service, Wattle Tree House, Sureway, LiveBetter and Wellways.

High school students and community members will get an idea of pathways to education or employment in the health industry for First Nations people.

nursingCharles Sturt Pro Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Engagement) Professor Juanita Sherwood said the University is proud to support this event, which is pivotal in encouraging First Nations students from the Central West to pursue a health career.

“We encourage First Nations students and community to drop into the expo on Thursday and connect with industry and mentors who can help you take the first step in pursuing such a rewarding pathway,” she said.

“We would like to see more First Nations students pursuing further studies and careers in the health industry and Charles Sturt University is proud to play a part in making that happen.”

The expo will be held on Thursday 4 March from 9.15am to 2.30pm in building 1292 at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst.

The event is a collaboration between Three Rivers Regional Assembly (TRRA) and Training Services NSW – Regional Industry Education Partnership.

The University’s Three Rivers UDRH has committed to the TRRA project for the remainder of the year.

Community members are encouraged to register for the event on the Eventbrite website.
