Ada Wilmadda Parry Aboriginal Health Scholarship - 2021


Ada Wilmadda Parry was one of the first Cultural Educators at NTGPE. Ada advocates the importance of cultural training for general practitioners who work in the Northern Territory and is motivated to ensure Indigenous families don’t have to struggle to be understood culturally and linguistically by medical practitioners.

The Ada Wilmadda Parry Aboriginal Health Scholarship provides $5,000 for up to two GP registrars training with NTGPE who demonstrate a strong interest in improving Indigenous health and improving cultural and linguistic understanding between Aboriginal patients and general practitioners. This is a self-nominated award.
