Bradley Morgan graduated from his Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) in 2017 and is currently undertaking his Master of Clinical Chiropractic at CQUniversity. After graduation, Brad hopes to run seminars in schools across Australia to inspire Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to engage in tertiary study in allied health professions – professions which are severely under-represented. An Indigenous Australia, Brad is passionate about educating and inspiring the next generation.
“I want to head out to schools and try and spread the word at a grassroots level and let people know that joining the allied health profession is attainable and is achievable. It’s not a walk in the park and it is definitely not easy, but it is possible.”
A former diesel mechanic, police officer and automotive TAFE lecturer, Brad’s interest in the health industry was sparked when he completed a personal training course in 2002. Throughout this time, Brad worked in the Kimberley region, where he witnessed the gap in Indigenous health and a lack of health services in remote Indigenous communities. These experiences fuelled his desire to offer a mobile health service to these remote towns and communities as part of his scope of practice.
As the recipient of the 2019 Australian Rotary Indigenous Health Scholarship, Brad hopes to involve younger generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the health industry.
