Pit stop fuels men’s health initiative
d483736 MURMUM Pit Stop was in Kwinana on Tuesday as part of Men’s Health Week.
The aim of the Murmum Pit Stop was to provide a culturally appropriate health check service to respond to the specific health needs of Indigenous men.
The pit stop was at Medina Hall and included Nyoongar Sports, Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service and Medina Aboriginal Cultural Centre.
During Men’s Health Week, communities and organisations are encouraged to put on events to promote the health of men and boys.
The theme of this year’s event was ‘Men and families: making healthy connections’, to explore the ways families support the health and wellbeing of men and boys. People were also encouraged to recognise the positive contributions men and boys make.
