ECU South West will host the second annual Health and Wellness Expo on Wednesday, 25 August at the Bunbury Campus, following the success of the Joondalup and Mount Lawley events.
The Expo will be opened by ECU’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kerry Cox, and will feature a presentation from inspiring guest speaker Alison Braun, who lost 55 kilos in the TV series The Biggest Loser.
“The Doc” from the Western Force will also attend the Expo to discuss issues relating to men’s health.
Other Expo highlights include massage and reflexology, information on healthy eating and nutrition, cooking demonstrations, zumba join in demonstrations and multicultural dancers.
Health and Wellness Co-ordinator, Fiona Peters, believes the event is a great opportunity to promote the Health and Wellness Live Life Longer program, which has seen ECU recognised by the WA Department of Sport and Recreation as one of the leading organisations in the state when it comes to workplace health programs.
“The Live Life Longer program is a fantastic initiative, which aims to promote health and wellbeing among campus staff and community members through information sessions, programs and events.”
“We hope that by attending the Expo, staff and the community can get an insight into the program and find effective ways to improve their own personal health and wellbeing.”
Bookings are recommended, with group bookings from high schools and TAFEs welcome.
