Introducing Uniform- A new season of All Things Equal

#109 - Inheriting the Pain

"I don't know how I knew, but I've known my whole life" In this episode of Think: Health, we explore the complexity of intergenerational trauma and the impact it has on mental health. A new study conducted by Kim Slender, PhD Student at the University of Technology Sydney is looking at the epigenetic transmission of trauma across generations within the Jewish community and how this trauma can become embedded into ones genetic makeup. Featuring: Kim Slender - PhD Student in the Graduate School of Health at the University of Technology Sydney. Sylvia Griffin - Artist, Sydney Norm Sheehan - Director, GNIBI College of Indigenous Australian Peoples, Southern Cross University. Producer/Presenter: Evie Maguire.

#108 - The Global NCD Crisis

Non-communicable diseases are the leading cause of death around the globe responsible for more than 70% of global deaths. NCD's refer to an umbrella of chronic non-transmissible diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. While the extent of the burden is internationally recognised, efforts to tackle this growing health crisis are failing to address the root cause - social and economic inequality. This episode we look at how non-communicable diseases are impacting our poorest and most vulnerable communities and why Indigenous populations are completely removed from the global conversation. Featuring: Summer May Finlay - Co-Chair of Indigenous NCD's. Rosemary Wyber - Head of Strategy for End RHD at the Telethon Kids Institute. Producer/Presenter: Jake Morcom.

#107 - The Success of Pink Sari

In 2014, women from South Asian communities - from India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan and Bhutan - had the lowest rates of breast cancer screening in New South Wales. Breast cancer screenings, or mammograms, are vital for the early detection and treatment of breast cancer in women aged 50 to 74. But for some reason, only 1 in 5 women from South Asian communities were getting them. This is the story of the public health initiative that not only turned this statistic around, but in doing so brought a community of women together in celebration of the strengths of our multicultural nation.

#106 - The Move to Criminalise Amyl Nitrite

EAmyl Nitrites (known as "amyl" or "poppers") are a part of life for many queer Australians, particularly gay men. A prescription level relaxant, it has been used as a party drug and sex aid for decades. Now, the Therapeutic Goods Administration has proposed criminalising amyl, moving it to the same classification as heroin. Since amyl is a non-addictive substance with significantly lower health risks, many in the queer community are seeing this move as an act of discrimination. Producer/Presenter: Daniel Butler Featuring: Dr Daniel Demant, Lecturer in Public Health, University of Technology Sydney *Due to the number of submissions, the TGA has delayed its final decision and extended the deadline for community feedback. There will be public forums held in Sydney and Melbourne early next year.

#105 - Why Climate Change Is A Mental Health Crisis

Where we've typically ascribed trauma to the individual, climate change now sees large groups of people sharing the same damaging experience in what's being called 'collective trauma'. But as post-disaster care continues to prioritise physical safety, the mental health of survivors often falls to the wayside. This episode we explore the global implications of climate change on mental health and why our mental health services aren't ready for what's to come. Featuring: Lucy Chen - Student at the University of Technology Sydney and Climate Activist. Helen Berry - Professor of Climate Change and Mental Health at the University of Sydney. Jennifer First - Program Manager at the Disaster and Community Crisis Centre at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Producer/Presenter: Jake Morcom.

#104 - Why Australia Could Get Sued for Protecting the Environment

When tobacco company Philip Morris sued Australia over our plain packaging laws, it's fair to say we were taken by surprise. How can a foreign company take a nation's government to tribunal for protecting its citizens health? The answer is Investor State Dispute Settlement, an obscure clause in free trade agreements allowing corporations to sue foreign governments for what it perceives to be unfair discrimination. In practice, this tends to end up happening over regulations in two areas: health, and the environment. This episode unpacks how ISDS could put a stranglehold on regulations and policies that put people ahead of profit. Producer/Presenter: Cheyne Anderson Speakers: Dr Patricia Ranald, Convener of Australian Fair Trade and Investment Network Dr Carl Rhodes, Professor of Organizational Studies at the University of Technology Sydney Matthew Rimmer, Professor of Intellectual Property and Innovation Law at the Queensland University of Technology Max Bonnell, Partner White & Case

#103 - Can a Smartphone Tell If You're Sick?

Our smart devices may know us better than our doctor. There's a range of apps currently available that can help us monitor and manage our health. But can our smart devices also help diagnose medical problems in the first place? This episode explores the possibilities and potential ethical issues around digital diagnoses.
