More than 60 people were educated on the importance of maintaining men’s health at a forum at the Deniliquin RSL Club on Wednesday last week.
Intereach coordinated the forum to coincide with National Men’s Health week.
The evening started with a relaxed barbecue in the RSL Club’s beer garden.
The official part of the evening featured internationally renowned leading motivational speaker and life coach Craig Harper.
Mr Harper specialises in health, fitness and personal development and his no-nonsense, straight talking and humorous style was well received by the predominately male audience.
Intereach Deniliquin hub coordinator Nicole Hearn said Mr Harper’s presentation focused on delivering the message that anyone can change themselves for the better if they are prepared to get a little uncomfortable.
The main presentation was followed by informative talks from local health professionals – diabetes educator Claire Kerslake, Dr Anne Freeman and mental health clinician and educator Ellen Cross.
‘‘They delivered a range of important health messages on diabetes, heart health, general men’s health and mental health,’’ Mrs Hearn said.
‘‘It’s great to see local men taking an active step towards managing their health. There hasn’t been an event of this kind locally for a few years.’’
Intereach worked with Loddon Mallee Murray Medicare Local, Deniliquin Local Health Advisory Committee, Deniliquin RSL Club, Deniliquin Lions Club, Deniliquin Menshed and Naponda Hospital Auxiliary to promote the night.
