Gary Goanna Storybook
This innovative storybook was developed in partnership with
and health professionals across WA. The result is a culturally appropriate,
entertaining and creative storybook that features a unique fusion of
contemporary and Aboriginal artwork.
This resource has been developed to help encourage the uptake of
lifestyle behaviours amongst young Aboriginal children and their families.
'Gary Goanna Goes Healthy' promotes 3 important preventative messages:
- Eat healthy
- Keep fit
- Choose water
It is hoped that the storybook will help to prevent the incidence of type 2 diabetes within the Aboriginal population of Western Australia and increase knowledge about the condition more generally.
