South Burnett Regional Council’s first Health and Community Services Expo filled the Kingaroy Town Hall with exhibits on Thursday and Friday last week.
The free two-day expo shone a spotlight on the various health services available in the region and also provided an opportunity for health professionals to network and learn more about each other’s services.
Free COVID-19 vaccinations were also available in the Town Hall Reception Room.
Organiser Margie Hams said she was pleased with the roll up from health and community organisations with 55 stalls booked in.
The Expo was open to the public on from noon to 5:00pm on Thursday and from 8:00am to 3:00pm on Friday.
On Thursday evening, a special meet’n’greet for health workers was held in the Kingaroy Town Hall Forecourt with Kingaroy Rotary manning the bar, JC Catering providing the nibbles and live music from Rob Fitz-Herbert.
“It’s been a good couple of days for our first go,” Margie said.
“It’s been a really good opportunity for the community to visit and for stallholders to meet with each other.”
The Expo was held with support from the Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN.
