Free health checks for Dubbo in September
At HCF, we want to help boost the health and wellbeing of all Australians. That’s why we’ve launched a campaign to put health first in Dubbo.
From 3 September - 3 October 2016, we’ll be offering free health checks in Dubbo’s Orana Mall with our HCF Health Check Station, allowing people to unlock essential stats about their health in just a few minutes, to help them take charge of their health and wellbeing.
Dubbo's health The facts
Dubbo is a fast-growing, friendly town. It has a wealth of sporting fields, parks, public areas and an array of fitness activities for residents on a regular basis — essentials for living a healthy lifestyle. But there’s still a way to go in Dubbo, with the town reporting the 3rd highest rates of smoking-related deaths in NSW, and a 21% higher rate of strokes than the state average.
- 82.55 hectares of parks, sporting fields and public open space
- 16km is the length of Dubbo’s sprawling, scenic Tracker Riley Cycleway
- 3rd city ranking for the highest smoking-related deaths in NSW
- 21% higher than NSW average of stroke-related deaths
What is the HCF health Check station?
The Health Check Station is an intelligent machine that enables you to learn more about your personal health. Taking measurements based on your height, weight and blood pressure - along with a few simple questions about yourself - the Health Check Station can provide you with a range of statistics and figures, including:
- Body Mass Index
- Fat percentage
- Blood pressure
- Heart rate
It will also give you a health score out of 10 based on your age and gender, tell you how your results compare with the rest of Australia, and can email you more information so you can track your results over time.
Please note: many factors affect your risk of ill health. The HCF Health Check Station provides a general assessment of some potential health issues based on the limited information provided. It is not precise. If you require a detailed health assessment or the diagnosis of any symptoms, you should consult your doctor.
Privacy: HCF does not have access to your personal health score information. This information is held only to enable you to track your progress over time, and will not be used for marketing or any other purpose.
