Joint move­ment dis­cus­sion at open fo­rum

Mansfield Courier - - COURIER | OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

MANS­FIELD’S com­mu­nity nurse Deb Smith has in­vited all in­ter­ested res­i­dents to at­tend one of two fo­rums on joint health.

This is a chance to have your say and learn more about mus­cle, bone and joint health.

One in three Aus­tralians is af­fected by mus­cle, bone and joint con­di­tions; yet these con­di­tions re­ceive very lit­tle at­ten­tion.

“We need your voice to help us change this,” Ms Smith said.

“Help guide fu­ture in­vest­ment in mus­cle, bone and joint re­search, ad­vo­cacy and ed­u­ca­tion.”

MOVE (for­merly Arthri­tis Vic) is run­ning two fo­rums in Be­nalla for con­sumers to have their say.

The first is on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 11 at the Be­nalla Bowls Club from 2pm to 4pm (reg­is­tra­tions from 1.30pm).

The sec­ond fo­rum is at the same venue from 6pm to 8pm with reg­is­tra­tions open from 5.30pm.

“We would love you to stay for the en­tire ses­sion but we un­der­stand peo­ple have other com­mit­ments so feel free to come late or leave early, any con­tri­bu­tion is greatly ap­pre­ci­ated,” Ms Smith said.

You can regis­ter your in­ter­est be­fore Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 4 by calling 1800 263 265 for more in­for­ma­tion.
