Talking Wyndham is your weekly insight into the people who make the City of Wyndham surprising, fascinating, vibrant, and interesting.
Talking Wyndham is an initiative of the Committee for Wyndham, presented by Kevin Hillier.
In this edition we meet Meg Cotter, Education Project Officer from the Wyndham Community & Education Centre, and discover the multitude of programs and services they run, including the ‘Walk through Health’ program.
Led by Wyndham CEC in partnership with Mercy Health, the program provides members of culturally diverse communities to learn more about how to access the health system in Australia and specifically in the City of Wyndham.
Starting on July 13, and held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, sessions cover a broad range of topics including emergency health, chronic illnesses such as diabetes and cancer, maternal and child health, mental health, drugs and alcohol, accessing health services via Medicare, what to do if you don’t have Medicare, interpreter and translation services, options at the community health centres and more.
