Women’s Health Week, a timely reminder

Swan Hill Rural City Council is encouraging community members and workplaces to put good health and wellbeing in the spotlight, during Women’s Health Week 2023.

Mayor, Cr Les McPhee said the importance of good health and wellbeing should be at the forefront of our minds, always, however Women’s Health Week is an opportunity to remind our residents.

“We get busy in our day to day lives and sometimes we tend not to prioritise our health, as well as we should.

“Women’s Health Week is a time to highlight the importance of proactive health management, not only for the benefit of our own well-being, but for our families too.

Cr McPhee said Council held an all staff shared lunch this week, to encourage our people to prioritise their health and wellbeing.

“Fittingly, Cr Nicole McKay, who is also a local midwife, was the guest speaker.

“Cr McKay passionately spoke about the significance of Women’s Health Week and ensuring that we are having regular health checks,” Cr McPhee added.

Cr Nicole McKay said she was delighted to spend a moment with Council staff, in a relaxed environment, to discuss all things Women’s Health.

“I am a staunch advocate for Women’s health, and I am proud to stand alongside Women in our community to promote and advocate for their health and wellbeing.

“Women’s Health Week is a time to acknowledge the unique challenges that all women, girls, and gender-diverse people face in maintaining good health. It provides an opportunity raise awareness and offer resources and tools that improve our health outcomes.” Cr McKay said.

Cr McKay encouraged all residents to take a moment this week to prioritise health to create a stronger and healthier community, for all.
