- My health for life hosted its first community forum Creating healthier and happier communities in Mackay on July 5. Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young and international demographer Eliane Miles were the keynote speakers. More than 80 health professionals and community leaders attended, including the Mackay Mayor Greg Williamson and the Local Member for Mackay and Assistant Minister Julieanne Gilbert. Other speakers included My health for life Director Lyn Hamill who presented a case study on the program and the strong successes achieved to date. The event received good feedback and there are now plans to host other types of forums in the future.
- Testimonials, from a range of participants, have been added to the My health for life website and are worth a look. Testimonials will feature as part of a social media campaign promoting the program in September.
