Hey all! I’m Erin, a white Australian woman. I was born and raised in #Naarm, on the land of the #Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. I’ve been many different versions of myself. Most recently I’m a psychologist, research assistant, and #PhD student
For most of my life it's just been my mother, brother, and me. Things weren't always easy but we were always supported - in #learning and in life. I'm lucky that I've always been able to try things out without being scared of failure or judgement. It's all been an #adventure

The Federal Government is progressing its commitment to establishing a national Centre for Disease Control, with the recent publication of a stakeholder consultation report summarising key responses about roles and functions of an #AusCDC
2. Plan out the content in draft form for the week. Even if this is on a scrap of paper. You might have guessed from my tweeting this week that I had planned Mon, Tues & Thurs. I had guessed it would be easy to tweet about #IWD on Weds but I didn't plan my final 3 days.
Featured in this tweet and the one following are all pieces of street art from Naarm (some legal, some sneaky) that celebrate First Nations Australians. Perhaps some of you recognise where they are from?
The tram one should be familar to most Victorians and is part of @risingmelbourne 2022 First Peoples art trams rising.melbourne/wormhole/2022-… It is called Blak Love and is by Dr Paola Balla (Wemba Wemba-Gunditjmara)
Late night tweet...which may go unnoticed...but heres hoping someone sees it & has ideas. Applying decolonisation to Learning Design for this unit (& others) meant talking about issues in #PublicHealth research & evidence. I find this to be a super complex teacher/student dynamic

These women helped me to begin to build the #SystemsThinking content while the talented & patient #LearningDesigner Nick Lekakis kept me in line from a teaching & learning viewpoint.
Prior to VU I hadn't worked with a Learning Designer before, in fact I didn't know they existed!
Photo taken on Larrakia Country @mishymorgs@Riley_Therese People can be the bridge between us & something new, something complex, something challenging. Both Therese & Michelle helped us workout the starting point for designing our unit in #SystemsThinking & provided key guidance along with resources.

This week I am hoping that the varied content I will tweet will be interesting, create conversation & perhaps inspire in some form.
It is @LopeyPen here tweeting this afternoon & for the rest of the week from the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung People of the Kulin Nation.
Currently I am on the 15th floor of @victoriauninews
Before I begin my week of tweeting #PublicHealthMoves I would like to acknowledge that the Wurundjeri People are the traditional owners of the land I am on. I note that March is luk Eel Season based on the Eastern Kulin Seasonal Calendar (image from @museumsvictoria).
The @CroakeyNews bulletin is emailed to subscribers every Thursday.
Here's a wrap of this week's stories...
"Consumer submissions to the Parliamentary inquiry provide a detailed picture of diverse experiences of people with #LongCOVID" @JenniferDoggett croakey.org/listen-to-the-…
"Looking at that quote & the Grattan Report side by side, it’s easy to feel like not much progress has been made in general practice policy in the three decades between them" – @JenniferDoggett
.@AHPA_AU have member branches in each state/territory and keep busy advocating for health promotion, such as their submission to gambling harm Inquiry, & supporting members through their #healthpromotion activities
Now to put the spotlight on @COHealth - who have been a fantastic supporter of @CroakeyNews from soon after we first set up as a non profit organisation. Read more about their work here: cohealth.org.au#AppreciationDay#HealthEquityMatters2023#CroakeyFundingDrive
Why might a community health service support public interest journalism? Perhaps because @COHealth has a holistic view of health & works for health equity. As they say: "We pursue health & social equity through care for individuals, care for community & care for society."
The inaugural #CroakeyFundingDrive officially kicks off today with a week-long program of activities.
We will be tweeting from @WePublicHealth during the week to share why supporting public interest journalism is important.
Firstly, I would like to acknowledge that I live and work on the lands of the Kaurna people & pay my respects to Elders past and present – AB.
