What is healthTrack?
healthTrack is a preventative health initiative working across the Ceduna, the Mid West, and Lower Eyre Health Service communities focusing on improving nutrition and physical activity levels.
healthTrack supports the community through partnerships that assist in the provision of resources, equipment, training, up-skilling and educational opportunities that can be accessed by all. Support can include the healthTrack Small Grants Program, training opportunities, and resources for community groups to develop sustainable activities that support good nutrition and physical activity.
The healthTrack project focuses heavily on community and workforce capacity building, building sustainable solutions with communities enabling them to solve local issues relevant to increasing physical activity and better nutrition.
