MOOROOPNA Education & Activity Centre (MEAC) and Primary Care Connect (PCC) have combined forces to provide more exercise programs at the MEAC Hub in Mooroopna, which will directly benefit the community.

MEAC manager, Sharron Handley said, “Working together with Primary Care Connect means that we are better resourced and are fully supported, allowing us to now offer as many as 16 exercise programs per week on our site.”

The exercise programs are primarily focused toward senior citizens, along with disability groups, and the co-operation between MEAC and PPC works to benefit both services, as well as the community.

PCC manager clinical services, Rebecca Presser said, “Primary Care Connect are in the process of renovating and have needed to find somewhere to run our exercise programs in the meantime. It’s a great opportunity for us to work in partnership with MEAC and it’s working well for both of us. We hope to work together on more projects in the future that will further benefit the community.”
