Please join me in offering congratulations to Professor Blinkhorn on being awarded a NH&MRC grant for his study, A Phase Two Clinical Trial of a Program delivered by Aboriginal Health: Workers to Prevent Early Childhood Caries in Aboriginal Children' in collaboration with A/Professor Fiona Blinkhorn, University of Newcastle, and Dr Ngiare Brown, Poche Centre for Indigenous Health, Sydney Medical School.

This very significant award will ensure the progression of the highly successful pilot program trialled in Moree and Toumelah and linking in with Aboriginal communities in Rural New South Wales for the oral health intervention.

Says Professor Blinkhorn `We are looking forward to working with Aboriginal communities to improve the oral health of young children'.
