In celebration of National Close the Gap Day we join the Fitzroy Stars, an Aboriginal football club, on their training weekend. Not only is the club helping its players to live healthier lifestyles, it’s also spreading the word in the community about closing the life expectancy gap between Aboriginal men and other Australians.
Today marks the fifth anniversary of the Close the Gap Campaign which works to close the life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians within a generation.
