We are very excited to launch our Winter Health Series TOMORROW at 12.00pm at GEALC. With vaccination nurses onsite to provide COVID and Flu vaccines, we will also hear about how to navigate the health system, the role of the GP, how Medicare works, the importance of regular health check-ups and more!I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
Winter is definitely here so please stay warm and healthy. Note that doctors and health professionals are strongly recommending the Flu Vaccine for this coming winter season - COME TO GEALC ON THURSDAY BETWEEN 1pm and 3pm TO GET YOUR FLU VAX!
Unfortunately, there will be no Walk & Talk again this week, due to our health event on Thursday (and the very cold weather).
We are very happy to report that we raised over $1300 for the Cancer Council at our Biggest Morning Tea. Thank you for your involvement and support! Check out the Good News Story below!
