Women’s Health Week – get involved!

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Shadow Minister for Women and Shadow Minister for Country Health Emma Kealy MP is encouraging all Victorian women to get involved in 2018 Women’s Health Week, which will run from 3 to 7 September this year.

Now in its sixth year, Women’s Health Week continues to grow with more than 60,000 women expected to take part in 1,500 events to be held around Australia this year.

More than 25,000 have already registered to receive free health-related information emailed to them every day of Women’s Health Week.

“We know that a lack of time is one of the biggest barriers to women making positive health changes but it’s important we all make time to put our own health first,” Ms Kealy said.

“The goal of Women’s Health Week is to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining good health, preventing future health problems and promoting good health in ways that support sustained behaviour change.

“Women can get involved online or by attending one of the 1,500 events to be held from our capital cities to remote and rural regions right across Australia during the week.

“I actively encourage all women to make the time to put themselves first and make their own good health a priority.”
