Show Notes

Kama Trudgen (MBBS) is a medical doctor who has worked as a General Practice Registrar in Aboriginal Medical Centres.  She has lived and worked on Elcho Island since 2009 and speaks Gupupuyngu. She is particularly passionate about preventative medicine and empowering people, and has stepped outside the Western medical model of health care delivery. Kama provides the support, education and resources that are needed so that Yolngu can own and control the process of looking after their own health. Along with Dianne Gondarra, she is co-founder of the Hope for Health project.  Carren, Kim and Cyndi are enthralled with her life and what she has learnt about the aboriginal culture.
