Health Days

The shed hosts about four health days a year to give us informed advice on topics of interest to ourselves and our families.

Monash Men’s Shed partners with quality Health & Community services on a quarterly series of health days.

Previous Health Days include flu injections, first aid courses, talks on diabetes, hearing loss, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, skin cancers, and the services that pharmacists offer.

The shed also hosts about regular informal events on men’s health matters.

The Monash Men’s Shed is a registered Health Promotions Charity. Investing in men’s health with us is tax deductable.
