HEALTH and Wellbeing organisation IWC will once again be part of the 2019 Veterans’ Health Week activities being delivered by the Bundaberg RSL Sub-Branch.
With the theme of “Mental Wellness”, IWC’s two Accredited Practising Dietitians will be delivering three free interactive sessions over the course of the week – all designed to support physical and emotional wellbeing of Veterans.
IWC is non-government, Aboriginal community-controlled and a registered charity, and is here for all in our communities.
“Our community’s Veterans, of all ages, have very specific health and wellbeing challenges, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol,” said IWC Dietitian Chloe Bauer.
“We welcome Veterans all year round, but we see Veterans’ Health Week as a great way to spend time in group sessions, offering tailored advice and tips specifically for this group.”
Veterans’ Health Week runs from 26 October to 3 November, and Chloe and fellow IWC Dietitian Jessica Bauer will be presenting three sessions on Monday 28 October, Tuesday 29 October and Friday 1 November.
“The first will be all about Eating for Energy, with a hands-on cooking demonstration at the end,” said Chloe.
“The second is titled Healthy Food, Happy Mind, and that session will involve food tastings.
“Session number three offers a Speed Date with a Dietitian. We will first drill down into making an individual meal plan that works for each person, according to their needs and tastes, and then we are one-on-one chats at
