Coffs Clinical Network Aboriginal Health Promotion Officer, Belinda Jackson, co-facilitated a program call Aboriginal Stepping On (ASO) at Coffs Harbour recently.

The falls prevention program is funded by NSW Health and implemented by MNCLHD, and is a free, informative and friendly community-based program for Aboriginal adults aged from 45 years. It is evidence-based and designed to build knowledge, strength, balance and confidence to prevent falls and stay active and independent.

It is the second time this program has been held in Coffs Harbour in the past 12 months, and the Health Promotion team is now planning the next ASO to be held in Macksville in November.

If you would like to refer a patient to the upcoming ASO in Macksville, or would like more information, please contact Belinda Jackson.
