The Best Indoor Exhibitor at Agfair was awarded to the Far West Local Health District (FW LHD) for their stand in the Rotary Pavilion.
“This is a great achievement for the Far West LHD,” Ms Corina Kemp, Executive Manager Aboriginal Health and Community Relations said.
The FW LHD staff gave people who visited the stand free fruit, water, practical everyday items and information about the FW LHD services.
The local community heard about virtual health, nursing pathways, employment opportunities, healthy eating, child and family services, mental health, drug and alcohol services, dental care services and support services when someone passes away.
“The promotion of our new virtual ICU service attracted much interest,” Ms Kemp said.
Other drawcards were posters and an interactive children’s wall.
“The FW LHD stand was very popular on both days of Agfair,” Ms Kemp said.
Across the thoroughfare another FW LHD stand also proved popular.
The stand was set up to promote the free Get Healthy service to locals and health professionals.
An overwhelming number of people visited the stand and a good number signed up to be referred to the free Get Healthy service.
“Signing up to the Get Healthy Information and Coaching Service means you get up to 10 phone calls of free advice from a professionally trained health coach in the area of healthy eating, nutrition and physical activity,” Rebecca Crawford, Health Promotion Officer at Broken Hill’s Community Health service said.
Ms Crawford explained that you can re-sign after your 10 phone calls and continue to receive telephone support for a healthier life.
The FW LHD staff look forward to seeing the Broken Hill community at the next Agfair.
