NEXT MEETING 29 JULY – Vicki Welsby, Community Educator for Brain Injury Hawkes Bay
ATTENDANCE 25 including guest speaker Dr Colin Hutchinson and Matt Gough
SERGEANT’S SESSION raised $82.20
TWO MINUTE TALK – Roger Jopling
Roger talked about the plane he built 30 years ago. It was a small single-engine plane that he built from scratch. It has flown 345 hrs and given good service, that is up until now! Difficult to start he looked at all remedies with no result and with the third attempt using aerosol in the carburettor it fired up and ran well, Should he fly it? How frustrating Roger!
SPEAKER Dr Colin Hutchinson
From Leicester in the UK Colin specialised as a kidney specialist in Birmingham. After working in the NHS in the UK he moved to Hawkes Bay seven years ago.
Working as a kidney specialist he saw the need for health to be preventative rather than reactive. 60% of kidney disease is preventable. There are 2500 people with kidney failure and New Zealand spends millions treating kidney health. Western lifestyle impacts on health and the key factors are obesity, hypertension, cholesterol and sleep apnoea.
Shape My Health is a New Zealand owned company which empowers people to manage their own health. Cars need new WOF checks, are our bodies any different?
Moving from reactive medicine to preventative medicine, Shape My Health offers health assessments. Most people wait until they are sick before they see a doctor. Shape My Health empowers people to manage their health before problems arise. The assessment tests for 60+ offer a pre-assessment questionnaire to get a feel for your health provides a baseline medical and provides a review and a health plan – with a doctor’s report card. These
Health assessments cost $500.
Colin said they don’t replace your primary health team but complement them. Often further support is arranged through scans, sleep studies, heart scans etc. They have a team with a broad range of specialists. Shape My Health will offer support to empower people to manage their own health. Check their website https://shapemyhealth.co.nz/
