Community Wellness Expo
Organised by the LMA in partnership with the Sydney Local Health District, the Community Wellness Expo helps open a dialogue on key challenges within the local community associated with health and wellbeing.
The expo seeks to address the challenges of staying healthy and managing diseases, with a focus on preventative measures and open discussion, as it looks to bridge the gap between service providers and communities. With a strong focus on raising awareness about the key health issues facing communities, the expo seeks to connect members of the many local communities with information on diseases, wellbeing and mental health as well as introducing the large variety of service providers to attendees.
Taking place each year at the LMA community centre, the expo features services including breast cancer screening, GP check-ups, nutritionist advice, baby and children health checks, diabetes risk assessment, fitness and sporting advice, dental health care, healthy mind tests, physio and chiro assessments and much more.
The Community Wellness Expo has been steadily growing every year with over 2500 people attending in 2017.
