My name is Steph, I have recently joined BCNA as the Active and Well Programs Officer and I’ve been very busy working on a new initiative.
We’re thrilled to be launching Active and Well After Breast Cancer, an initiative designed to assist women to lead a healthier lifestyle after having breast cancer.
Active and Well After Breast Cancer is a pilot initiative for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer up to three years ago from Melbourne’s North West suburbs. Central to the initiative is the delivery of an information day which will help women to understand more about the benefits of regular physical activity and healthy eating after a breast cancer diagnosis.
The initiative will provide an opportunity for women to connect and share with others in their community who also want to take charge of their health and wellbeing and link women with local community-based health programs to help them maintain an active lifestyle.
Registrations are now open for the information day which will be held in Flemington (Victoria) on September 4 2014 and is open to women from across the north western suburbs of metropolitan Melbourne, including Altona, Fitzroy, Whittlesea, Sunbury and Taylors Lakes.
For more information about the initiative or to register for the Active and Well After Breast Cancer information day at Flemington please call BCNA on 1800 500 258.
I look forward to meeting some of you at the information day next month!
