- Charles Sturt joins forces with daily news publication Women’s Agenda to launch new section for publication’s site called ‘Women’s Health News’
- New section will include vital news and weekly newsletter on key women’s health matters
- Section aims to support women of all ages in living their best lives and provide a space for creating more inclusive conversations around women’s health
The new ‘Women’s Health News’ section, which is published by Women’s Agenda’s parent company Agenda Media, includes articles, information and a weekly online newsletter covering a wide range of women’s health news and topics to support women of all ages in living their best lives.
Newly appointed Women’s Agenda Editor in Chief Ms Tarla Lambert said the section will provide a vital space for creating more inclusive conversations around women’s health.
“Our goal is to highlight some of the women’s health stories that often go ignored, and to elevate a wide range of female experts on these issues,” Ms Lambert said.
Charles Sturt’s Strategic Adviser – Regional Engagement and Government Relations the Hon. Fiona Nash said the University’s partnership will help get more women heard on health, particularly in regional and rural Australia.
“When we create platforms for important conversations, we are creating platforms that enable society to grow and prosper – and that’s why Charles Sturt University is thrilled to be the launch partner of Women’s Health News,” Ms Nash said.
“Our University is committed to improving women’s health options, with our research and teaching covering the physical, mental and spiritual health of women.
“We want women to have the best access they can to quality health services across regional and rural Australia.
“This partnership with Women’s Agenda is an important step forward in raising collective voices on women’s health issues.”
The new section comes at a time when women are seeking the latest news and information on key women’s health matters from reliable sources.
Agenda Media Co-founder Ms Angela Priestley said that their extensive audience research has found women are craving health information that extends well beyond social media influencers.
“Our audience told us they want information from medical experts,” Ms Priestley said.
“They want to see women’s health matters that have traditionally been underserved elsewhere getting more attention. And they want any information shared on exercise and nutrition to be research-backed, relevant and obtainable for busy women of all ages.”
“Charles Sturt University is very pleased to partner with Women’s Agenda to ensure women across Australia get the information they need to live well and create a world worth living in,” Professor Smith said.
“As a leader in regional and rural healthcare education, we have seen, for instance, the health effects – mental and physical – of the drought followed by the bushfires, and of course, the pandemic.
“So, we are committed to ensuring women have the support and services they need to be resilient and thrive.
“Our health graduates – more than 28,000 of them – are making a difference in health services across the country, and we are proud to extend that knowledge sharing through this partnership.”
The new section will share reports by journalists and contributors on key women’s health concerns, including endometriosis, sleep, heavy periods and prolapse. It will also cover reproductive rights and information, family planning, fertility, pregnancy and pre- and post-natal care.
Women’s Health News will also share the latest medically backed advice aimed at creating healthier minds and bodies, will rely on trained practitioners for expertise, and be inclusive in its approach to exploring fitness information and exercise ideas for women of all ages.
