Aboriginal Health

“We acknowledge these traditional lands of the Peramangk people and pay respects to Elders, past, present and emerging. We respect the spiritual relationship with country and the cultural beliefs which are still important today.”

David Booth created this artwork depicting a sunrise behind the Mount Barker Summit as a special meeting place for trade, circles linked together represent the Health Centre and link into community. The red U shapes are staff and the orange are the young and old who are sick and being cared for. The kangaroo tracks in a circle indicate a cycle of moving forward continually in the journey of closing the gap in Indigenous health. The purple and blue U shapes show different cultures and stages of health and healing as we all have our own journey.

Through the Welcoming Environments Grants.

Summit Health works collaboratively with other Adelaide Hills health organisations raising awareness of Aboriginal Health.
