Women’s Health Week: Take the time to look after yourself
When it comes to health, many women are great at caring for others but often put themselves last. Women’s Health Week 2017 (4-8 September) is the perfect time for women to prioritise their own health. By investing more time in themselves they are better able to look after the ones they love and care about.

“Women usually put the needs of their family ahead of themselves, but staying healthy in mind and body is good for the whole community. Women’s Health Week is a chance for women to start prioritizing their health, for everyone’s benefit,” says Jean Hailes Executive Director, Janet Michelmore AO.

The Western NSW Local Health District’s Women’s Health Service is celebrating Women’s Health Week, by hosting a free evening event in Dubbo on Tuesday 5th September 2017, entitled ‘Love Your Heart’.

Nicky Giddings, Women’s Health Nurse CNC from Western NSW Local Health District, invites women to join her to take the time to make their own health a priority.

“‘Love Your Heart’ will be fun and informative evening with Dr Jenny Geraghty presenting on heart health. Mel Matheson, a local dietitian and exercise physiologist, will also present on how a healthy diet and physical activity can improve a woman’s heart and bone health” said Ms Giddings.

The event is free to attend but a light supper will be provided, so bookings are essential.

  • When: Tuesday 5th September 2017, 5:45pm - 8pm
  • Where: Western NSW Local Health District’s Area Office, 29 Hawthorne St Dubbo
