How we can help...
We provide Health Promotion activities and education
throughout the Riverina. We have two programs we run throughout the
Riverina: Passport to Better Health – This is a 10 step health
promotion/education community event aimed at community members 15 years and
over. We invite/work with existing services within the community we are
visiting to assist us on the day. Healthy lunch and free Passport to
Better Health T-shirt is given to all participants who complete all of the 10
steps. Riverina Schools Program – Session 1 - This program is aimed at
students in Years 5 and 7. We educate the students through interactive
activities about the health effects of smoking, the ingredients in a cigarette,
the importance of nutrition and the dangers of energy drinks.
We are available to attend your health promotion day.
We have numerous resources to educate the community on the health effects of
smoking, we are able to assess a community members level of nicotine
dependence, explain what is available to assist them in quitting, calculate
BMI’s, provide information on portion control and eating a balanced diet.
