Drop in and check under the hood when Darling Downs Health hosts the Health Check PitStop
at the Toowoomba PCYC, James Street, from 9am – 2pm next Monday 11 March.
The success of last yearâ€™s inaugural Health Check PitStop has seen the event opened up to the
wider community. â€œOur first event last year was aimed at providing vital health checks for Darling Downs Health staff, plus staff from the areaâ€™s emergency services and all branches of the Australian Defence Force,â€ said Darling Downs Health community and consumer engagement officer Donna Lucas.
â€œThe response was excellent, so when the decision was made to run the PitStop again there
was overwhelming support to make it open to the everyone in the community.
â€œThere will be free blood pressure and blood sugar checks carried out by USQ student nurses
and nurses from BlueCare, free hearing checks from Australian Hearing, plus loads of
information on skin cancer, bowel cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, diet and
nutrition, mental health and much more.
â€œThere will be special offers from Milne Bay Fitness and a free coffee voucher for everyone who
attends. We encourage anyone who wants to get their health back on track to drop in for some free
advice, said Ms Lucas.â€
