Learn more about women’s health and wellbeing at the free Women of the World Wellbeing Expo on 15 May, between 10am and 1pm.

Hosted by the City of Gosnells, in partnership with the City of Canning, Breastscreen WA and Richmond Wellbeing, the event will increase awareness of health and wellbeing services and programs available to local women, particularly those from diverse backgrounds.

Health professionals will be available to discuss health issues, healthy families, physical activity, and nutrition with expo visitors, and connect them with local support and community services.

City of Gosnells Deputy Mayor Julie Brown said the event was planned for the day after Mother’s Day, because many women put the wellbeing of their families and friends above their own.

“Whether you’re a mother or not, it’s important, as women, we take time out to care for ourselves,” Cr Brown said.

“Unless we care for our own health first, we will be unable to reach our potential, care for others or enjoy our lives to their fullest. Education about health matters creates healthier, happier families and communities.”

A healthy lunch and refreshments will be provided, along with door prizes, activities and resources.

Bookings are required to take advantage of a free, supervised activity area for children aged two to five years old.

Bookings can be made by calling 1300 22 664, or emailing before Thursday 11 May.
