Chronic Disease Prevention
(CDP) Through Culture
Carbal’s Chronic Disease Prevention Through Culture Training
Carbal now offers this six-week educational program provided for FREE to primary and high schools across Australia to assist in self-facilitating classroom learning on Chronic Disease Prevention (CDP) through the lens of First Australian culture.
About the Program:
Our program aims to educate students on Chronic Disease Prevention and to increase health literacy earlier on in life during their important formative years as they start making lifestyle decisions for themselves.
Chronic diseases are shown to be much more prevalent within Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations at a younger age, compared to non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations.
Most chronic diseases are also largely preventable and are heavily influenced by lifestyle choices. We believe early education is crucial in improving health literacy to achieve a greater impact in our National interests of Closing the Gap for generations to come.
Carbal’s Chronic Disease Prevention Through Culture consist of 6x one-hour sessions covering the following topics:
Connection to Country, Connection to our Bodies
Totem and the Importance of Social and Emotional Wellbeing
Dancing and Why We Need to be Active to Prevent Disease
Storytelling and How It Can Help Us Learn About Our Culture and Chronic Disease
Music and its Place in Healing
Art and How Expression Can Help Prevention
