Launch of video "Young Women Choosing Health”

The video,  "Young Women Choosing Health” – features presenters at the 2012 Health Day, as well as Danika one of the students attending that day and Steff Armstrong, Weenthunga’s Health and Education Consultant.  To register go to: http://www.trybooking.com/99264 - by no later than 12pm Tues 2nd September. Some lovely canapés will be served at 5.30 to sustain us all after work!

A number of the First Australian women who have featured in Weenthunga Health Days: Women’s Talk will be present to share their thoughts about video and about what has become an annual event.

The purpose of the Weenthunga Health Day: Women’s Talk is to provide an opportunity for about 20 young First Australian women (Years 10 – 12) to participate in a focused health day to raise their awareness of the importance of healthy lives and to see the possibilities of health careers.  They meet and listen to a range of First Australian women health professionals and hopefully this influences their understandings and decisions with their own health and career ideas. The Weenthunga health day is a beginning for some of these young women.  Listening to these health professionals may inspire them to continue with their schooling, seek scholarships and maybe even undertake health courses – like these women before them.

The purpose of the DVD/video is to reach a much wider audience of First Australian students – to capture their interest and to illustrate good online resources which showcase health careers.

The launch event will be held in the APS Offices on level 13 257 Collins Street – between Swanston and Elizabeth Streets – not far from Flinders Street Station.

Weenthunga Committee members would love to meet you at this launch and to celebrate with you these wonderful women in health and the launch of the video showcasing their messages to senior secondary school girls.  Simply click here to register your attendance: http://www.trybooking.com/99264
