Expo gives display of services available

Jessica CuthbertAlbany Advertiser

TerryWhite Chemmart hosted an inaugural health expo on Saturday.

The expo aimed to raise community awareness of what is available in the Great Southern when it comes to health pro-viders.

More than 20 stallholders set up in the Chester Pass Mall to showcase their services to the community.

The event hosted a range of providers, including not-for-profit Great Southern Aboriginal Health Services, Pregnancy Matters Albany, and Hawthorn House Alzheimer’s WA, which provided information and advice throughout the expo.

TerryWhite Chemmart manager Brad Smithson said the event was very well received.

“We were really happy with how the expo went — it was a great crowd and we had over 20 stalls from a wide variety of local health organisations,” he said.

“The aim of the expo was to bring local health organisations together in one place to enable them to see what each other are doing in Albany and the Great Southern and, secondly, making the public aware of what is out there for health information and support.”

It was the first health expo and Mr Smithson said he hoped to make it an annual event.
