Creating a Healthy GV

GV Health hosted a ‘Healthy GV’ Breakfast, bringing together key community leaders and organisations to discuss a ‘Healthy Together Victoria – Workplace Achievement Program’.

People from a range of local organisations attended and speakers included: GV Health CEO Dale Fraser, Denise Laughlin, Department of Health and Human Services, and Craig Sinclair, Cancer Council Victoria.

GV Health has already adopted the program and is now inviting local businesses to join the effort to improve the health and wellbeing of their staff and the broader community.

The Health and Wellbeing Charter for GV Health focuses on four key areas: Healthy Culture, Healthy Physical Environment, Healthy Community Connections, and Health and Wellbeing Opportunities. The program is being integrated across GV Health activities, programs, policies and workplaces and GV Health will lead by example in its actions. Addressing key issues such as healthy eating, physical activity, mental health, alcohol and smoking are some of the priorities.
