Making Messages: protecting the hearts of women we love
NSW: Heart Foundation Australia

This three-minute film features Aboriginal women from the Eurobodalla and Bega Valley Shires in New South Wales (NSW) talking about their experiences of heart attack.

The film uses real stories as a way of making women more aware of the signs and symptoms of heart attack and ways to reduce risk. The film was produced by film-maker Lou Glover as part of a Heart Foundation Community Grant project which involved collaboration between Womens Resource Centre Bega, Southern NSW Local Health District, Childcare Resources and Advisory Aboriginal Corporation, Katungul Aboriginal Medical Service and Narooma Schools as Community Centres Project. The video is freely available for viewing on youtube.
