Women’s Health Event in Yarram

A delightful atmosphere, good fun mingled with facts

On last Wednesday evening Yarram and District Health Service held a Women’s Health Event in Yarram. The event created a relaxed atmosphere to talk about women’s health issues. We heard from Dr Amanda Newman from Jean Hailes who spoke about cardiovascular disease and menopause. Jean Hailes for Women’s Health was proud to be involved in this event, with support from the Eirene Lucas Foundation. There was a great question and answer discussion with a wide range of panellists including, Graina Sheehan from Gippsland Community Legal Service, Page Williams from Quantum Family Violence, Britt Turner from Yarram and District Health Service, and our guest speaker Dr Amanda Newman. The event ended with a fun activity planned and run by The Royal Flying Doctors Service. From that activity an art installation can be viewed in town in the shop window of 223 Commercial Road.
