Volunteers’ News – November 2021

Hello everyone, it’s November already, as the year seems to have passed in a dream-state of lockdown, misleading news, and daily accounts of government follies. Enjoy the spring and the run-up to the December frenzy.

Two important health issues are highlighted this month:
Movember November 1-30 draws attention to prostate cancer and depression in men. Contact https://au.movember.com
Lung Health Awareness Month November 1-30
Dedicated to increasing public awareness of the many types of lung disease, more information on lung health is available at https://lungfoundation.com.au
Also on this site is National Safe Work Month which aims to help workers learn to protect themselves and their lungs at work.
