Dead or deadly program changing lives of local Indigenous women

Date posted: 11 June 2014

The Dead or deadly health and wellbeing program, run through Waminda, the South Coast Women's Health and Welfare Aboriginal Corporation, is making a positive change for Indigenous women in the community of Nowra, by tackling issues of health and personal and family wellbeing.

Dead and deadly started five years ago as a 10-week pilot to try to address health issues among Indigenous women, and has since helped hundreds of women make significant changes to their lives. The program includes a number of components, such as nutrition and healthy eating, physical activity and social and emotional aspects. Full health assessments are also available, with participants undergoing blood pressure, diabetes and other medical checks.

Unfortunately, the future of the program is unsure, as funding for the program runs out on 30th June.
