Sunshine Coast Heart Week Expo
If you want to improve your health and wellbeing, make sure you head to the Sunshine Coast Heart Expo from 8am to noon this Saturday (April 30) and talk to health experts on a range of topics.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said the Sunshine Coast Social Strategy 2015 outlined council’s priorities in building a stronger community.
“One of the strategy’s four key targets is to ensure the Sunshine Coast maintains its number one ranking as the healthiest region in Queensland,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“To help us achieve that, council has partnered with the health and wellbeing sector to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle during Heart Week.
“I invite the community to join me and the Heart Foundation Walkers for a leisurely walk around Lake Kawana at 8am this Saturday to launch the Sunshine Coast Heart Week.
“Saturday also features the Sunshine Coast Heart Week 2016 Expo at Lake Kawana Community Centre.
“There will be free bike rides, stand up paddle boarding, walking, cooking demonstrations, free vascular health checks, a jumping castle and more.
“From 8.30am we will hear from high-calibre health and well-being experts who are delivering specialist presentations with an opportunity for questions and answers at the end.
“This is a rare opportunity for people to hear first-hand from specialists such as Professor Kim Greaves, Director of Cardiac Research, Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Services and Associate Professor Chris Askew, Head of the VasoActive Research Group and Senior Research Fellow, University of the Sunshine Coast to name a few.”
