Live Rural and the National Centre For Farmer Health collaborate for series of free workshops on women’s health

LIVE Rural and the National Centre For Farmer Health have collaborated to deliver a series of free workshops focusing on women’s health.

Each workshop will focus on different aspects of women’s health and the first 16 to register will receive a free health check with the staff from the National Centre For Farmer Health.

The first workshop will be held on September 14 at the Maroona Recreation Reserve, focusing on diet, nutrition and women’s health.

Money raised from Mellow In The Yellow has assisted in making these workshops free to women living in rural communities.

The workshop has a line-up of great guest speakers and presenters. Sarah Carter will be speaking about the importance of breast care and Jess Fishburn from Gen Health Hamilton with be talking about diet and nutrition.

Live Rural director Leila McDougall said there was a need for workshops like this to bring women within rural communities together to educate them on topics in personal and family health care.

“Not only is this a great way to educate women about their physical and mental health but it is also a great chance for women to come together to inspire and encourage one another to reach their full potential within their own communities,” she said.
