The North West Hospital and Health Service in partnership with Save The Children, North West Remote Health, RFDS and Doomadgee Aboriginal Shire Council, is hosting its first collaborative Health Expo in Doomadgee.
The event, organised by Save The Children, encourages families in Doomadgee to come along for a day of healthy activities, education sessions, stalls and entertainment in a fun environment.
North West Hospital and Health Service Chief Executive, Lisa Davies Jones said improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health is a priority for the North West Hospital and Health Service.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for us to partner with Doomadgee Aboriginal Shire Council and Save The Children and other service providers to deliver important health messages to the children in a fun and entertaining way," she said.
Free entertainment will also include Mount Isa artist and puppeteer Louis Johnson and his marvellous mechanical puppet Dr Kevin, who will spread simple messages on how to prevent trachoma.
The Health Expo will also receive a special visit from Milpa the Trachoma Goanna, to promote the message of clean faces, strong eyes.
Entry is free to the Doomadgee Health Expo on Wednesday 23 October from 10am - 2pm at the Dumaji Children and Family Centre.
