Business Medical Forum

​The City of Canterbury Bankstown will be the first Council in Australia to host a Health and Medical Industry Forum.

Administrator, Richard Colley, said the event, to be held on 28 February at the Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre, aims to inform local businesses in the health and medical field on how to improve services using new technology, and better understand the health care needs and service gaps in the local community.

“It’s important we keep providing information that assists health and medical professionals to improve their workplace practices, their employees and our community,” Mr Colley said.

“We expect this forum will bring like-minded individuals together so they can swap ideas and find new ways to work together to better the health of our residents.”

One of the guest speakers will be Sydney Sleep Clinic Chief Executive, Amjad Richani.

“A lack of sleep is a huge risk factor,” Mr Richani said.

“Studies have shown it’s just as bad as being intoxicated. A person who is sleep deprived, or doesn’t get enough rest, increases their chance of developing depression, becoming overweight, and developing serious health problems, such as heart disease.

“I’ll be showing how sleep disorders impact a person’s mental and physical health and wellbeing, and how medical professionals can diagnose and treat sleep disorders in an easier and more affordable way by gaining access to the right information.”

Mr Colley said the Health and Medical Industry Forum follows the success of Council’s Manufacturing, Retail, and Building and Construction Forums, which are now being replicated by other Councils throughout Australia.

Bookings for the 28 February Health and Medical Industry Forum are essential - email domenica.mirarchi@cbcity.nsw.gov.au.
