The Carr Famiy Foundation ran its first Rural Health and Wellness programme at the South Island Dairy Conference on the 8th and 9th
of June. This was an extremely successful two days and was highlighted by the overall data we received and the amount of farmers and reps that stopped in for a check up with our registered nurse. We were extremely grateful to have received support from the Chemist Warehouse who provided all our medical
supplies and equipment for the two days as well as Prolife Foods who kindly
donated the Mother Earth Musli Bars that were handed out after the check up.
KEY DATA / STATISTICS FOUND:
- 73 checks done in total
- 29 Females
- 44 Males
- 13 were referred to a GP / Practice Nurse
- 1 x High Blood Pressure, Cholesteral, Weight, Smoker, Family HX Hypertension, urgent RIV within 1 week

Our official launch with the new Rural Health and Wellness van is the 6th of July at the Temuka Ewe Fair. The van is looking to be completed by the 27th of June.
