Comment:

‘I’m really excited by this initiative – what a great way to get men involved, to take responsibility for their health and hopefully make a change. My health has always been so important to me through my sporting career and it’s something I just can’t afford to take for granted. As a member of ahm and their brand ambassador, I’m proud to be associated with Check It and can hopefully help to influence some healthy and positive change in local men!’
Steve Waugh, Brand Ambassador ahm Health Insurance

‘Australian men are notoriously reluctant to be pro-active about their own health – sometimes with fatal consequences. A group of Illawarra men and women is determined to do something to change this, and help men in our community take more responsibility for their health.

We will be inviting Illawarra men of all ages to come to the WEC on 20 August, where they will be able to undertake a variety of screenings, blood tests and other assessments for conditions such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes and some cancers, and seek advice and information on depression, anxiety, stress, alcohol and drug dependency and so on.

CHECK IT will be staffed by IDGP volunteers as well as other specialists and health professionals, assisted by medical, nursing and health and behavioural science students from the University of Wollongong.’
