Brisbane Indigenous Media Association recently hosted its first Healthy Community event at 98.9FM, as part of its Move project promoting physical activity and chronic disease prevention. Members of Brisbane’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community were able to check out local health services and organisations that provided health screenings, physical exercise activities and health promotion information. Visitors were also treated to free healthy tucker and free entertainment from Indigenous comics Sean Choolburra, Steven Oliver and Sam Conway. Media personalities, Jamie Dunn and Agro also made an appearance.
