A free health information morning will be held in Drum Community Centre, Summerhill, Athlone on Wednesday next, March 15th.
The event is organised by Drum Community Centre in partnership with local health and wellbeing practitioners. It aims to provide people with a chance to find out more about the various health and wellbeing services available in the Athlone area and it will run from 9am to 1pm.
A wide range of Healthcare professionals and representatives from a number of organisations will be in attendance to meet the public and offer free advice and information about the treatments they provide.
Among those in attendance will be Health promotion staff and a mental health officer from the HSE, along with a bereavement counsellor from Pieta House. The Marie Keating Foundation will be onsite with their mobile information unit and a local pharmacist will also be present.
Recognising the importance of physical activity in good health, members of local walking groups and leaders of the successful Operation Transformation group in Moore will be in attendance to encourage people to get active.
A local reflexologist, a yoga teacher and a holistic therapist will advise on the benefits of alternative therapies and treatments.
John Murphy, Manager of Drum Community Centre, says
“We’re delighted to have the support of a broad range of healthcare professionals, who are providing their services for free in our community centre. We are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible take advantage of this great opportunity to talk to the health and wellbeing staff in an informal setting. It’s open to the entire community, and there’s no charge.”
