I am Corey Turner, I am a Kaurna/Narungga man, born on Kaurna country Adelaide. I love working with my mob and I feel I have been a proactive member to the Kaurna and Southern Aboriginal Community, supporting local heritage and Native Title aspirations.
I am currently employed by the National Heart Foundation, to lead and improve national partnerships, and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers, lead Aboriginal medical and health services and organisations across the country.
I have been actively doing national work for several years, spending the last 12 months building on heart health knowledge and improving the Heart Foundations service delivery to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers and health professionals. Prior to the National Heart Foundation, I was with National Service Support Team in Red Cross Australia for 7 years supporting their numerous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs. I have also over 20 years’ experience with the Federal government and has also spent time working in the South Australia Aboriginal Health Division. I mostly enjoy my time with my four amazing children and beautiful wife, I love nature drawing and Aboriginal art. As a Traditional Owner, this location is special, significant and unique, and can potentially bring a sense of community, fun and enjoyment for everyone. By working together with Traditional Owners, the Glenthorne National Park can be the model of future environment, cultural and spiritual restoration for all to embrace and connect to.
