Standing Strong Together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Award

The Standing Strong Together Award is presented by the RACGP National Faculty of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health to any Fellow or member of the RACGP and any Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who have worked together to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Nominations are open to all Fellows and members of the RACGP and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia.

The Award winner will receive a commemorative trophy which will be presented at GP15 in September 2015. The RACGP will fund the cost of the winners' (two representatives) return economy class airfare and accommodation to attend the Academic Session, Fellowship and Awards Ceremony.

The 2014 Standing Strong Together Award winner was the Aboriginal Medical Service Western Sydney’s Chronic Care Team. The team has been working together since 1991 to support Aboriginal patients with chronic diseases; overseeing Aboriginal health checks; conducting research, preventative health activities and group programs; delivering education programs; and providing cultural mentorship to staff at the Aboriginal Medical Service.
