Cultural determinants integral to closing the gap, says incoming CEO of The Lowitja Institute


The Lowitja Institute is the nation’s leading body on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research. The institute is named in honour of Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue and brings together leading researchers, policy makers and experts in order to deliver its services.

Aboriginal health leader Romlie Mokak was recently appointed in the position of CEO, and is expected to oversee the Institute’s transformation into a “natural and compelling point of collaboration”. Amidst a plethora of issues, Mokak intends to spearhead the more grass-roots cultural determinants including racism and societal apathy.
