The Rotary initiative, Men’s Health Education Rural Van, visits Bathurst on 6 and 7 December 2017. 

The Men’s Health Education Rural Van is a purpose-built caravan with two consulting rooms and will tour 56 centres in NSW between August 2017 and May 2018.

It has a full time Registered Nurse, Nicole Page, who with the assistance of local community nurses will conduct health tests for rural men.

The main aim of the project is to increase and promote the awareness of men’s health through community visits and to provide free health checks that may indicate more serious issues and thereby potentially saving lives.

The van will be located in the car park of the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre during the two-day visit.

All consultations are confidential and reports will be generated for local health-care practitioners should a health concern be identified during a particular visit.

For more information, contact Rotary Club of Bathurst President, Steve Semmens on 0412 522 771.
