Don’t miss out on the things you love – 2016 heart calendar

Together with the Aboriginal community in South Australia, SA Health have developed a calendar to educate people about rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease and the importance of regular penicillin injections in preventing rheumatic fever.

The theme of the calendar is ‘Don't miss out on the things you love’ and features photos of community members sharing what they love and why they look after their heart.

The calendar also includes important health messages and information about rheumatic fever or rheumatic heart disease. It is designed as an interactive resource and is supported by a guide for clinicians using the calendar with their clients.  The calendar and support resource are free to download from the SA Health website or from the RHDAustralia resource page.

For more information, or to request copies of the resource, please contact the SA RHD Control Program on 08 7425 7146 or by email rhd@sa.gov.au
