Greater Shepparton’s most influential leaders recently gathered over two days to tackle Childhood Obesity Prevention in the Goulburn Valley.
During the summit, convened by Goulburn Valley Primary Care Partnership, participants were engaged in a process called ‘Systems Thinking’ – to explore the factors that contribute to overweight and obesity. Solutions to the problem were developed, examined and prioritised to yield a series of priority areas, which our community leaders were willing to stand up and commit to taking further actions to halt or reverse the rates of childhood obesity locally.
Goulburn Valley Primary Care Partnership will now facilitate further connections to drive the multiple actions developed, and will mobilise more leaders from within our community to work together to ensure a collaborative approach to this problem.

- Local Businessman Adam Furphy,
