Men’s Health Lunch to combat stroke

 

10 March 2017

 

Stroke is the third most common cause of death in Australia. In fact, about 40,000 Australians suffer from stroke annually — and of those cases, 73% experience stroke for the first time.

 

This year’s Men’s Health Lunch will focus on the advances in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of stroke patients.

 

Hosted by Epworth’s Group Chief Executive, Dr Lachlan Henderson, together with Master of Ceremonies Sports Physician Dr Peter Larkins, the event features guest speakers including Neurologist Dr Katya Kotschet, Neurosurgeon Mr Ian Wang and Rehabilitation Physician Dr Stephen de Graaf.

 

The educational lunch forum will be held on Thursday 11 May from 12.00 noon in the Members Dining Room of the MCG. All are welcome to attend with tickets available at $200 per person or $1900 a table of ten​.

 

The Epworth Medical Foundation holds annual men’s and women’s health lunches to engage and inform its community on the health risks affecting them today and how to make wise lifestyle choices. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
