Indigenous Yarning Circle

After the success of the yarning circle at the 2017 World Congress on Public Health, this year’s Australian Public Health Conference will also feature an Indigenous yarning circle.


The yarning circle is a place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies to come and listen, network and yarn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.
