16 April

The Australian Women's Health Network is currently conducting their National 2014 Survey. By taking the time to complete the survey (about 15 minutes) you will be helping to plan for the future of AWHN on several fronts. The survey will help AWHN better understand what services you find useful, what you could do without and what else could be done in the area of women's health and well being. 

As an incentive (not that you really need one) we are also offering a fabulous $100 gift voucher as a prize.
