Health Check Days
Since 2005 NCACCH has been hosting an annual Well Person’s Health Check Day (WPHCD) on both the Sunshine Coast and Gympie in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Division of General Practice (SCDGP) and Qld Health. The WPHCD aims to educate and increase awareness of the health issues affecting our community. The day encourages community members to complete their general and sexual health checks and then follow up with their local GP for a Full Adult Health Checks. It is also a day for local organisations/agencies (Indigenous and Non-Indigenous) to hold an information stall to promote their services and to link in and liaise with the Indigenous community and their workers. Influenza and Pneumococcal vaccinations are also available on the day. The event is catered with free healthy food options for families and entertainment (both adult and children). There are also healthy cooking demonstrations throughout the day.
Once again our two WPHC Days were extremely successful this year with over 500 community members attending the days. This year’s theme focused on reducing the risk factor for chronic disease through Physical Activity.
