Men’s Health Week 2017

Mens Health WeekMen’s Health Week focusses on improving and maintaining the health of our men, boys and their families, and having those meaningful conversations about the factors that keep us healthy in body and mind.

This year’s theme “HEALTHY BODY – HEALTHY MIND: KEEPING THE BALANCE” explores the different ways men and boys are managing to keep healthy, physically and emotionally, in a busy and sometimes challenging world. Balancing these challenges means doing things that are nourishing and good.

Men’s Health Week is your opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of our men and boys.

Gladstone News spoke to men in our community about the stuff guys don’t normally talk about. We’re reaching out to men and boys this Men’s Health Week and respond to the issues impacting on the health of men, boys and their families in our local area.

A Gladstone man tells all about his fight with ice addiction. Peter O’Dwyer shares his weight loss story, Remo talks sleep apnoea and Shane McLeod’s shock heart attack at 45.

Plus, Ken O’Dowd rolls up his sleeves for Blood donation and raises awareness for Prostate Cancer.
