As part of Healthy Together Cardinia Shire (HTCS), the Cardinia Shire Health Ambassador initiative can support you to improve your own health and influence the health of others in Cardinia Shire.
Health ambassadors are committed to helping residents improve their lifestyles. You will be trained and supported to gain the confidence, knowledge and skills to promote healthy lifestyles and thus share your knowledge and skills with your family, friends and communities in ways that best suit your networks, interests and experiences.
Health ambassadors benefit by learning new skills, and improving their social connections, professional opportunities, and awareness and knowledge of health and wellbeing. At the same time, you will benefit your own communities, increasing knowledge and awareness of health, promoting healthy behaviours and good preventive measures, and improving access to health services.
To express your interest in becoming a health ambassador, contact Cardinia Shire's Health Promotion Coordinator on 1300 787 624 or email.
