Taliesha Peckham, Earbus Nurse
 

Hi my name is Taliesha Peckham, I’m from Darwin in the Northern Territory. I ventured over to Western Australia in 2013 where I began boarding school and successfully finished year 12. After being here for 2 years I discovered that I enjoyed living in Perth and decided to pursue my dream of becoming a Nurse. That led me to Marr Mooditj Training where I successfully completed a Diploma of Enrolled Nursing. Throughout my nursing studies I worked at an Aged Care facility and now, following graduation, I am honoured to be a part of the Earbus team. I will be continuing on with my studies at Edith Cowan University – I hope to qualify as a Registered Nurse - while working with Earbus Foundation.

SW Program Attracts Funding Support

Since November 2016 Earbus Foundation has been visiting Djidi Djidi Aboriginal School in Bunbury to provide ear health screening with SWAMS providing vital GP and ENT support. In 2018 we have received a generous 3-year grant from the Ian Potter Foundation to fund services to the region which previously had been provided on a pro bono basis. We are very grateful to Ian Potter Foundation as their support will also allow Starlight Children’s Foundation to accompany Earbus staff on our trips to the SW. This expansion of our collaboration with Starlight is exciting and we look forward to Starlight Captains working alongside the Earbus Clinical Team to engage local children in the program.

We also thank PEACH Alcoa for a generous equipment grant which will allow us to carry a range of testing and screening equipment on our new SW Earbus. The Aboriginal artwork for the bus has been designed by students at Djidi Djidi and it will debut shortly.
