Updated: Oct 12, 2020
NSW Multicultural Health Week 2020 is focusing on health literacy and the safe use of medications.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and the global pandemic has put health front and centre of public consciousness.

Journalist Toni Ambrogetti spoke to Ashley Young, Manager, Multicultural and Refugee Health of the Hunter New England Local Health District about what's being done in our region to assist culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
