Community Researchers Sue Cherel, Becky Smith, Sam Ahfat, Irene Passenger and Janice Moora travelled to Perth and spent a week at the Telethon office during April, 2017. This trip was also made possible through a grant received from '100 Women'.
During this week the community researchers shared their knowledge of cultural protocols and language with other Telethon Kids Institute researchers, learnt about research methods and the broader work of Telethon Kids, and participated in forums with the Alcohol and Pregnancy and FASD research group and the Kulunga Aboriginal Research Development Unit.
Three 100 Women members also attended an afternoon tea at Telethon Kids where they met with Sue, Becky, Sam, Irene, Janice, Tracy and Bree. The women shared stories and learnt about the '100 Women' vision. A delicious afternoon was provided, including damper prepared by Sam, Becky and Tracy.
