Event description

Description

Is your organisation implementing the Healthy Choices guidelines in it's retail food outlets, vending machines or catering, or do you support other organisations in your area with Healthy Choices?

Would you like to connect with others to learn new ideas and help overcome challenges with meeting the guidelines?

The Healthy Eating Advisory Service (HEAS) is hosting a half-day forum, with support from Alfred Health, to bring together people from across Victoria who are working to provide and promote healthier foods and drinks in line with the Victorian Government's Healthy Choices guidelines.

This forum will feature a panel discussion showcasing the experiences from different sport and recreation centres, hospitals and health services and universities across Victoria who are implementing Healthy Choices. There will also be small group discussions and opportunities for networking with HEAS staff and other professionals working in this space.
