Check The Male 2021
Check The Male 2021, Men of Malvern Inc. is a local group supporting the health and welfare of men. Established in 2013, Men of Malvern have previously hosted health forums like the East Malvern Men’s Shed.
The two groups have come together to offer our communities an opportunity to access important health knowledge
In the lead up to Father’s Day 2021, we’re excited to present our next health forum ‘Check the Male 2021’
Our event is about offering our community an opportunity to access important health knowledge in an open environment where both men and their partners are welcome, covering a range of important issues relevant to both men and women.
