A total of 19 students from a range of South Sydney High Schools recently converged on the Rabbitohs’ Simply Energy High Performance Centre at Redfern, to help launch the 2015 Framing Health Program, addressing critical indigenous health issues.

The Framing Health Program – now in its third year – is a collaborative effort between Souths Cares, Sydney University’s Compass Program and School of Public Health.

The innovative program sees teams of indigenous high school and university students create short promotional videos addressing key health messages for indigenous communities.

Six workshops will be held at Sydney University across 2015 featuring Graduate Diploma’s in Indigenous Health Promotion students and young indigenous students from across the South Sydney region.

The workshops involve the full development, scripting, acting and production of short films which in 2015 will be delivered through a variety of animation formats.

Speaking after the launch, Souths Cares General Manager Brock Schaefer enthused about the importance of the program.

“Framing Health is a unique and robust program that is designed to build awareness of health matters directly impacting young indigenous people,” said Brock.

“Souths Cares is thrilled to bring together students from a range of local high schools with experts from Sydney University to develop creative and exciting promotional videos that are sure to have an enduring benefit for future audiences.”
