No more Elephants in the Room

Why don’t you join me in joining forces with Jean Hailes Womens Health Week 7-11 September 2015. Theme No more Elephants in the Room  No more Elephants in the Room

No more Elephants in the Room

No more elephants! Let’s talk

“Jean Hailes is Australia’s leading and most trusted women’s health organisation is launching their new campaign. We believe in physical and emotional health and wellbeing for all women in Australia throughout their lives.”

It is time to get rid of the Elephant in the Room and get talking about women’s health. Women can be good talkers, but when it comes to health, we often don’t take the time to ask questions, seek out credible information and work on a sound plan of action. So what does the odd saying mean?. There is a problem or difficult situation that is obvious, but nobody wants to talk about it.

WHAT DO WOMEN WANT TO KNOW? Over 3300 women and health professionals completed a Jean Hailes survey telling them what women worry about and what health information they would like to hear about. 2015 Women’s Health Week will focus on what women want to know about their health:

  • Monday             – What do women want to talk about?
  • Tuesday            – Myths: what have you heard?
  • Wednesday      – Silent topics: what’s not being talked about?
  • Thursday           – Ask someone: who & what to ask
  • Friday                 – Now what? Tell us your pledge
