Baby bingo

The Gomeroi gaaynggal centre in Tamworth is home to the longest running study of Indigenous mothers and their babies undertaken anywhere in the world. It tracks the progress of mothers and their babies in their first 1000 days.
One of the researchers, University of Newcastle academic Dr Kym Rae, came up with the idea of using bingo, with prizes including baby goods, to attract nervous mothers to take part in the survey.

It is now providing invaluable insights into Indigenous health and development that can benefit communities for years.
