Karadi Health Link is based at North Care Amiens Clinic in Main Road Derwent Park.
Right on the bus route, plenty of car parking and sits with a pharmacy, Hobart Pathology, Your Path to health and of course the Amiens Clinic.
This week and next I’m back in Weipa (NE Australia) working on a research project with Alngith People — Traditional Owners of the western Weipa Peninsula — as well as Dr Kathryn Allen (Monash University), to collect cores from Aboriginal scarred trees in the region.
The work we’re doing involves applying dendrochronology, dendroecology and radiocarbon dating techniques to date Aboriginal scarred trees, understand growth rates on a particular species of tree and to collect new data about environmental change in the region over the past few centuries.
In Australia, scarred trees have typically been created by Indigenous peoples.
South eastern Australia is well known for the often large and imposing canoe scars carefully carved into the trunks of majestic river gums, and which are a common sight near waterways and wetlands.
Services provided from Karadi Health Link will include our Integrated Team Care (chronic disease program) Counselling, Home Care packages, Health Promotion, Allied Health services including Podiatry, Optometry, Diabetic educators, ear testing, speech pathology and lots more.
We look forward to seeing everyone in 2019 Karadi is an inclusive Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation, providing leadership in the sector and serving Aboriginal people of our catchment and their families in achieving strong cultural identity, good health and quality of life.
These holes would then be sealed up again so that people could come back at a later time to collect more of the honey or wax.Next week, we’ll be selecting those trees that Alngith People want to core.
