Cessnock men are invited to get a free health check when the Men’s Health Education Rotary Van comes to town next week. More than 41,000 Australian men die each year from preventable disease, and given high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol generally have no apparent symptoms until it’s too late, it has never been more important for men to get a health check. The purpose-built caravan – known as MHERV – will be in Charlton Street (near the Reject Shop) on February 13 and 14 from 10am to 2pm. MHERV is a combined project of the Rotary Club of Warners Bay and Rutherford-Telarah, and is funded wholly from sponsorship and donations, including the ongoing sponsorship of nursing services from the Royal Freemasons Benevolent Institution. Put simply, the service is designed to save lives. Since 2017, 8214 men in more than 100 towns across rural and regional NSW have been tested in MHERV, and 300 were referred for urgent medical attention. “I come across guys who haven’t seen a doctor for years,” says registered nurse Robert Woolley, who conducts the health checks. “I know any client I have consulted has left knowing more about their health than before they visited the MHERV project, and I believe many lives have been directly or indirectly saved.” The free, 10-minute health check includes blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar tests. No appointment is necessary. To find out more, email mhervteam@gmail.com.
