Annual Women’s Health Information Night in Shepparton

The seventh annual Women’s Health Information Night was originally scheduled for October but was postponed due to flooding.

Firm owner Margreet Stegeman is hosting the event and said it was an opportunity to provide women with information on relevant health issues.

“These forums are important for women across Shepparton as we delve into important topics that affect women,” Dr Stegeman said.

“Especially mental health, as we know the women in the family tend to come last and it’s important to get the message home so they understand their health.”

Dr Stegeman said she also wanted to make sure women were aware of the services available to them now and in the future.

The guest speakers at the event are all local practitioners specializing in specific areas: breast cancer, chronic pelvic pain and mental wellness.

A light supper will be offered after the event by Soroptimist International, Shepparton, and raffle prizes donated by local businesses will be up for grabs.

The event will be held at the University of Melbourne Department of Rural Health Amphitheatre, 49 Graham St, Shepparton at 6pm for a 6.30pm start on Wednesday 30 November.

The event is free; however, reservations are essential when visiting and a donation of gold coins on arrival to Soroptimist International, Shepparton is appreciated.
