Please help people in rural NSW gain better access to heath information

The shortage of health services in rural NSW is well known to people who live with arthritis. The lack of support can delay diagnosis and treatment, impacting people’s financial, social and physical wellbeing.

You can give people living in rural areas the chance to empower their own lives by supporting Arthritis NSW’s Rural Health Program. Since 2018, we have been visiting rural communities to deliver free education seminars in country towns. From Mudgee to Macksville, our Health Team has enabled audiences to manage their condition using nutrition and exercise. Many have acted on our advice to reduce their pain and regain mobility, and reclaimed their family and social lives, and their independence.

Feedback from past events

‘I was amazed at the presenter’s breadth of knowledge. I learned that I have to exercise more and he mentioned that Tai Chi was a good gentle exercise, so I might try that.’

‘It was a brilliant seminar. The presenter really knows his subject and believes in what he says.’

‘The information was pitched at the right level for the audience. Others I spoke to on the day agreed with me. It was very informative, yet relaxed.’


There are many more rural centres to visit. Once the pandemic restrictions are lifted, Arthritis NSW will resume our Rural Health Program schedule of seminars in country NSW in 2021.

Your gift will make a big difference to the lives of people living with arthritis in rural and regional areas of NSW.
