Mind & Body – Heritage FM

The team at Health Consumers’ Council feature on the Mind & Body program which airs on Wednesday nights from 6:00pm to 7:00pm on Heritage FM (107.3FM). HCC has a monthly slot with staff members talking about various topics affecting health consumers in WA.

In late 2016, Heritage FM radio presenter Cynthia Keith attended a Consumer Representative Introductory Skills workshop and found it informative and valuable. Impressed by HCC’s work in WA, and the potential and importance of the Consumer Representative, Cynthia created a new radio program ‘Mind and Body’. The pilot episode aired on December 7, featuring Pip Brennan talking about ‘Why it’s important to have consumer perspectives & engagement’.
