Did you know that in Victoria, the Wodonga community is known to be at high risk of heart attack, we have low heart health knowledge and we often don’t call an ambulance when we should.
This is where Heart Matters comes in.
What is Heart Matters?
Heart Matters is a community-based joint project between the Heart Foundation, Ambulance Victoria, and Monash University, with the support of the Victorian Government.
The project’s aim is to save lives through heart health community education.
Heart Matters is being delivered in Victoria in regions with the highest risk of heart attack and low levels of heart health knowledge and ambulance use. That’s why Heart Matters is in Albury Wodonga.
Free heart health education sessions
The Heart Matters Coordinator for the Wodonga region, Liz Cerini, is delivering free heart health education sessions in February to community groups and businesses. Sessions will cover the warning signs of a heart attack, what to do if you or someone you know has any of the warning signs, and how to reduce your risk of having a heart attack.
