Women's Health Week 2017

4-8 September 2017

whw2017The Jean Hailes Women's Health Week is an annual event that is dedicated to women across Australia to help make good health a priority.

Help make good health a priority

The two biggest barriers for women not maintaining a healthy lifestyle is 'lack of time' and 'health not being a priority'.

Ladies, Women's Health Week is the time to put ourselves first, even if it is just for one week, to start making positive changes that may last a lifetime. We are all leading busier lives than ever before and we have a tendency to let ourselves slip on our priority lists. However, the health of those we love starts with us. By investing more time in ourselves, we are better able to look after the ones we love and care about. So let's start putting ourselves first!

Women's Health Week at Diabetes SA

This year Diabetes SA will be participating in Women's Health Week through daily email updates to all staff, healthy lifestyle tips, a healthy cooking demonstration and staff being able to discuss healthy lifestyle information with Diabetes SA's very own health professionals. Our aim is to encourage everyone to get involved to ensure we all start putting ourselves first.

The topics of discussion for this year's Women's Health Week are:

Danielle and Accredited Practising Dietitian Anissia from the Health Services team, conducted a quick healthy cooking demonstration where they made Beetroot Vitality Balls. Danielle and Anissia informed staff that these balls are a quick, healthy snack that can be made in advance, are full of fibre, a source of fruit, vegetables, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Staff thoroughly enjoyed the tips throughout the week as well as the cooking demonstration and their goodie bag, courtesy of the Jean Hailes for Women's Health organisation.
