Deadly Choices is an awesome initiative that is set up to encourage our mob to make healthy choices for themselves and their families – including quitting smoking, eating healthy and exercising daily. Every year the Deadly Choices crew hold a Community Day in our region and our Health Team goes along to give them a hand. It’s a great day out – lots of fun activities, health information, guest speakers and freebies. This year you will have the chance to meet Patrick Johnson – an Olympic and Commonwealth Games champion who is a proud ambassador for the Deadly Choices initiative. Check out the posters below for dates/times/details of the Collinsville and Bowen events.

We’ll be there running a food stall and enjoying all the footy action for the afternoon – if you get your 715 health check at Herbert Street Family Medical Centre before the event you go into the running to be one of four people to run on to the field with a legend!This year’s NAIDOC Celebrations are shaping up to be lots of fun – with our Street Parade being held on Friday 13th July and our Family Fun Day on Saturday 14th July.
There are lots of opportunities to get involved with an art competition open to all ages (with great cash prizes), community and academic awards to be awarded on the day plus lots of arts and craft activities, traditional games, music, dancing and delicious tucker for all to enjoy.
