Client: Healthy Hearts for Women

Project Description

Healthy Hearts for Women – in late 2015 The Lismore Womens Health and Resource Centre were informed that they were the successful recipients of one of several grants awarded by the Heart Foundation across NSW. LWHRC worked extensively with health workers & community workers to raise awareness and increase knowledge of the risks, signs and symptoms of heart disease in women across the Northern Rivers Region. This included engagement with regional health organisations to participate in increasing the knowledge of heart disease to both staff and clients. 105 heart health screenings have been provided to women across the region. LWHRC have co-ordinated five events including the Casino Launch of the Heart Foundations, Making the Invisible Visible campaign; opened by The Honourable David Hurley Governor of NSW and attended by various dignitaries.
