After it’s success in South East Queensland, Deadly Choices is being introduced right here in South Australia.

The program aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to make smarter choices in regards to their health and encourage them to get an annual health check.

It comes after the ‘Close the Gap’ initiative, which aims to reduce disadvantage in areas such as life expectancy, mortality rates, education and employment by the year 2030.

Deadly Choices is for young children to educate them on healthcare.

Fresh spoke to Nathan Appo of Deadly Choices, Ian Lacey who started the program, ambassador Gavin Wanganeen and Education Minister Susan Close. Listen below.
