Researchers from Monash University will host a meeting for Rochester and district women next week to discuss a women’s health study.By Elaine Cooney
Women’s health in Rochester and district is the focus of a Monash University research study session taking place next week.
Women of all shapes and sizes, between the ages of 18 to 50, are being asked to meet at Rochester Primary School next Wednesday as part of the Monash University Women’s Public Health Research study.
Monash University post doctorate research fellow Dr Cheryce Harrison and Medicine graduate Nicole Ng are visiting 42 towns in regional Victoria to research healthy lifestyle programs to improve the health of younger women.
Dr Harrison said the results from the research would help women all around Australia, especially those who live in remote areas, who may not have access to a wide variety of health programs.
Information about how district residents fell about their overall health and what their exercise regimes and diets include will be collected as part of the study.
The project will look at the issues around weight gain in women.
Participants will be given fact sheets on healthy living as well as where to find the best information about women’s health.
Women in the 18 to 50 age bracket (who are not pregnant or have diabetes) are invited to take part.
The event will run at the school from 12.45pm to 2.15pm.
