7/9 Public Health – the VicHealth Phenomenon: Lyn Watson.

On Oct 5th, the U3A Yarra City Ageing Well group is holding a forum about connecting community groups to promote active and healthy ageing in the City of Yarra.

We have been fortunate enough to secure Dr Sandro Demaio as a keynote speaker for this. Sandro is the CEO of VicHealth and we think it apt to introduce this organisation: the world’s first health promotion foundation.
