Giving back to the community – Djaalinj Waakinj Ear Health Programme
In collaboration with Telethon Kids Institute and SJOG Murdoch Hospital, George is involved in treating ear disease in urban Aboriginal children in the Perth South Metropolitan areas. These children are reviewed and treated at no costs to the families with minimal waiting times for their ear, nose and throat issues. There have been positive outcomes in children’s ear health and their overall development from Djaalinj Waakinj since its inception. The strong relationships established with the local Aboriginal community and organisations provide a solid foundation on which to conduct research and also treatment now and into the future.
