G21 HWB PILLAR UPDATE - AUGUST 2019
The Health and Wellbeing Pillar hosted two forums in July – Unconscious Bias with Dr Jennifer Whelan (in partnership with Deakin and Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West) and a Health and Wellbeing Pillar Round Table that focused on developing an understanding of disadvantage. Both events were well attended and the feedback we received will assist in future planning.
 
The Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) area is slowly but surely developing a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Framework. With guidance and facilitation from Wei Leng Kwok (WLK Consulting), a representative working group has undertaken a workshop to refine the evaluation questions and indicators. This work will soon be presented to the HEAL partners with some training and piloting to refine the work. This  key piece of work that has been funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) as a resource for other prevention projects.
 
The Health Service Alliance (Barwon Health, Bellarine Community Health, and Colac Area Health) is focusing on Prevention of Violence Against Women and using health settings to implement their plan. For further information contact Ruth Cuttler (Healthy Communities Team - Bellarine Community Health) or Mairead O’Sullivan (Healthy Communities Team – Barwon Health)
 
The Next Health and Wellbeing Round Table is on Tuesday 10th September with a focus on learning about what helps keep people physically active. There will be presentations from Libby Mears and Brook Connolly Leisure Networks, Shona Casey, the CEO of YMCA Geelong, Sarah Albon from the Geelong Cats, Amy Gillett from Active Geelong and Sue Cormack who is involved with local sporting clubs. We will send further information in the coming weeks.
 
With the new State Health and Wellbeing Plan due to be released there will be opportunities to hear about the priorities – G21 will work with its partners to inform and discuss the implications for the region.
 
A final reminder - the G21 Annual Stakeholder Forum will be held on Friday 30th August.  Speakers include Radio presenter Patricia Karvelas, Premier Daniel Andrews and the new Vice Chancellor of Deakin University Professor Iain Martin. For more information or to secure your place at that forum visit: http://www.g21.com.au/news/stellar-speaking-line-g21-forum-0

We look forward to providing further updates shortly.
