‘It’s a Mob Thing’ health music festival

‘It’s a Mob Thing’ is an innovative festival that combines health promotion, workshops and an all First Nations music line up. The next health music festival is happening in Geelong (VIC) on 4 November – the event is organised by AIDA member Dr Ngaree Blow.

The festival’s purpose is to showcase First Nations strength and improve health equity through education, with a focus on preventative medicine.

Last year AIDA doctors and med students came along and spoke to community about careers in medicine and were great role models for the community to see! We are currently running off a relatively small budget that VACCHO supported us in obtaining and are looking for other sponsorship as well.

Tune into ‘It’s a Mob Thing’ socials for the latest updates.
