Deadly Choices Program
Yulu-Burri-Ba aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to make healthy choices for themselves and their families – to stop smoking, to eat good food and exercise daily. Deadly Choices also encourages our people to get an annual ‘Health Check’. If something is ‘deadly’ it is great. As such a Deadly Choice is a good choice.
