Queensland Health has nominated My health for life as an entrant in its health awards.
The workplace program continues to grow. There have been more than 3,900 health checks undertaken in workplaces so far this year, of which 35 per cent of people were eligible for My health for life - about 40 per cent have already completed the program.
Our community events have taken us all around the state but are now in the process of finishing for the year. There have been some memorable moments for our Community Engagement Team. At one event a woman burst into tears and embraced staff, claiming the program had “saved’’ her husband’s life.
My health for life recently partnered with Tennis Queensland to promote getting active and healthy lifestyles at the recent Cairns International Pro Tour event. Spectators, players, officials and even the ball kids enjoyed free massages, fruit slinkies and health checks during the two-day activation. Tennis Queensland is continuing its commitment to the health of Queenslanders by offering free one-hour tennis court hire at participating clubs – follow this link for more details. And remember, if you are at the Brisbane International in January don’t forget to come and see us and say hello.
Luke Geerlings has joined My health for life as the new Program Management Officer, replacing Jason Holtman.
