Beaudesert got savvy at The Centre's free expo

THE Centre Beaudesert hosted the first of three health and lifestyle expos today.

Visitors had access to financial counsellors, health services and community organisations all under one roof at the expo, which ran from 10am to 12pm.

The event will be held over three days with Tamborine Mountain and Boonah also to benefit from the free professional advice and complementary health and hearing checks.

Mayor Greg Christensen said the expos were a mine of information for all ages, addressing a wide range of health and social issues faced by many members of the Scenic Rim community at some stage in their lives.

“Increasingly, aged care is a concern for many members of our community and their families and so care providers and allied organisations will be well represented at the Get Savvy events,” he said.

“However, there's something for everyone, from savvy seniors to parents of pre-schoolers, as stallholders will have information on the National Disability Insurance Scheme, financial counselling, diet and nutrition, mental health and how to stay fit and healthy.

The Get Savvy Expo will be held in the same time slot at Tamborine Mountain library on March 14 and the Cultural Centre Boonah on March 15.
