MEN'S HEALTH EXPO
'CHECK THE MALE'
Men of Malvern Inc. is a local group supporting the health and welfare of men. Established in 2013, Men of Malvern have previously hosted health forums as has the
East Malvern Men’s Shed.
The two groups have come together to offer our communities an opportunity to access important health knowledge
During International Men’s Health, we’re excited to present our next health forum
‘Check the Male’
Our Men's Expo is about offering our community an opportunity to access important health knowledge.
This expo is an open environment where both men and their partner’s are welcome, covering a range of important issues relevant to both men and women.
