Landcare: Free Health Check Program

Hello all

Our Landcare Group has been given an opportunity to run a Sustainable Farming Families program at the Mudgegonga Hall the first two sessions will be held Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th of August at the Mudgegonga Hall between 9 am and 4.30 however late arrivals or early departures can be accommodated.

The attachment explains the program and Alison Hescock, from Alpine Health runs it, she has suggested we try and get 18 participants as that may ensure we have at least 15 turn up. Alison encourages couples to attend.

The workshops includes health checks (eg. blood pressure, cholesterol, blood oxygen level, PIKO lung or breathing test etc) as well as health information re: rural health, diabetes, farm hlth & safety, nutrition, mental health and stress related illness the list goes on. The first session involves 2 days and the next two sessions one day each over a twelve month period.

The local Alpine Valleys Vignerons who were successful in getting the program last year have given some very positive reports about the program, there was an article in the local paper a few weeks back.

We hope our local members take advantage of this opportunity all free of cost.

Please either book with Cindy on 57534539, Paul 57534557 or Alison Hescock on 0458 228 013.

Hope to see you there.
