Close The Gap event at Australian Catholic University, Banyo Thu Mar 25

The Australian Catholic University at Banyo will host a Close The Gap Day event on Thursday March 25, outside the canteen from 11.30am to 12.30pm. Close The Gap Day is part of a campaign to raise the health of indigenous Australians to the same level as other Australians'. A 2008 report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
said Indigenous Australians live, on average, 17 years less than
non-indigenous Australians. Other events in Queensland include a rally
at 8am on Thursday outside the Townsville office of the Federal MP for Herbert, the Liberal Party's Mr Peter Lindsay, on the corner of Ross River Road and Nathan St. For more events check the Close The Gap day website.

The Australian Catholic University's Banyo campus is on Nudgee Rd at Banyo, opposite the Nudgee golf course. Click here for a Google Map.
