Event co-organiser Michelle Philp, from Mossman Community Centre, said it was chance for local women to interact with experts.
“This is a terrific opportunity for women to explore some of the health issues they may be facing and help them make important choices in their 40s to ensure their long-term health and wellbeing,” she said.
“We encourage women to come along to hear about the latest research from experts.”
