Chloe Thompson—Dietician, Shona Maljkovic—Cardiac Support Nurse, Hailey Docking—Health Promotion Officer
The team of health professionals from Yea & District Memorial Hospital gave a presentation directed at our health care, with prevention of health decline being the important message.  Shona, the Cardiac Support Nurse, working in Yea and Alexandra, presented a compelling case for prevention of cardiac disease and hospitalisation. She spoke of what we can do to reduce our risk, signs to recognize heart attack and what to do should this happen to you. Cardiac support is available by making an appointment at the Hospital or referral by your GP.
Chloe, Dietician, presented us with suggestions for eating for a healthy heart, e.g. 5 vegetables/2 fruit serves per day, and spoke of foods to limit and suggested foods to supplement with. 
Hailey, Health Promotion Officer, gave an overview of facilities that are available at the hospital, such as Diabetes support, psychologist, speech pathology, district nursing service and a walking group (10 am, Mondays, (eaving from the Community House).

 3 minute speaker - Darryl King
Darryl spoke of his career journey to where he is today—Chef, Grounds Keeper (City of Knox) and now Gardener. Darryl came to Yea when he purchased acreage, which of course required the establishment of a garden, and has since downsized to a 6 acre plot, which also requires the ongoing development of a garden! He was forced to reevaluate his workload after suffering a debilitating illness and lengthy rehabilitation. Darryl is passionate about giving back to the community, and along with his Rotary duties, he is involved in the Murrindindi Hub.
Thank you to Yea & District Riding Club
