NCACCH hold regular Women’s Groups giving community members the opportunity to come along and have a chat and meet other women. The types of things you could expect at our Women’s Groups, can include having a guest speaker come along and talk to the group (for example a diabetes educator do a talk about preventing or managing diabetes or a dietitian come along and do a cooking demonstration on healthy meals), or activities like exercise groups (tai chi, walking groups), craft, movie days, etc. We are open to input from the women on what they would like for future Women’s groups.
Due to preparation for WPHC Day on 24th March at USC, the NCACCH Women’s Groups will recommence in April 2018. If you have any questions please give us a call on 5346 9800.
