Free monthly health articles
The Jean Hailes Free monthly health article is available to health and community organisations for publication in your newsletter, magazine, blog or website. These articles cover a different women's health issue each month on topics such as anxiety and worry, vitamin D deficiency, endometriosis, hormone replacement therapy and polycystic ovary syndrome – just to name a few.
Many migrant groups in Australia suffer poorer health than the Australian-born population with evidence showing that the lack of culturally appropriate health information may be one of the contributing factors. To address this, Jean Hailes, with generous funding from the Collie Foundation, has conducted a three-year research project into better understanding the unique health information needs of migrant groups.
The results of this project are a range of culturally relevant resources that are freely available for download and distribution. These resources have been extensively tested within migrant groups. Jean Hailes is committed to improving the health of all women in Australia and this project is a testament to that vision.
