MSHR free seminar 


Yin Paradies presents ‘The DRUID Study: Exploring the health effects of racism for Indigenous people’, on Monday 31 July from 12pm to 1pm.

There is emerging evidence that self-reported racism has a detrimental effect on the health of minority populations around the world, but little information about the experiences of indigenous populations.

The Measure of Indigenous Racism Experiences (MIRE) was developed and administered to a subset of 312 Indigenous people aged 15 years and over who participated in the DRUID Study, an investigation of diabetes and related conditions among urban Indigenous people in the Darwin region.

Find out more about this study at Yin’s presentation which takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital campus.

Yin is a research fellow with the Environments, Services and Populations Division, at the Menzies School of Health Research.
