"Services provided by Kate Pickering to Adelong Men's Shed"

About: Rural Primary Health Service (Murrumbidgee Medicare Local)

(as other),

Kate has organised a number of health care sessions for the Men's Shed. Topics have centred around men's health eg prostate problems, cardiac issues.

Recently Kate organised a very successful Men's Pitstop where a number of health professionals provided information. One of the men was advised to see his GP about a darkness on his neck. He has subsequently had surgery to remove it. It was good to have members of the shed openly discussing health issues and problems and swapping war stories. More sessions as required and another pitstop in 12 months would be good. The members were all positive in their comments.
