Deadly choices healthy living

Deadly Choices aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to make healthy choices for themselves and their families. This program’s aim to normalise the idea of seeing a doctor not just when sick, but to remain healthy, access support and prevent or manage chronic disease.  
The partnership between Hawthorn Football Club and Deadly Choices ensures that, together, we introduce health checks at local Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations in each of the zones in which Hawthorn operates.
This year there was an emphasis on promoting the COVID 19 vaccine to young people in communities. Chad Wingard created videos to encourage supporters to visit their local doctors and get vaccinated.
