Free health check for students this week at CDU 


Menzies Researchers are in the CDU Nursing Laboratory now to offer students a chance to take part in a groundbreaking new study and have a free health check.

Young people born in Darwin between the years of 1987 – 1990 are encouraged to call Belinda on 89228701 or 0437 297 090 to make an appointment.

Clinics will be at CDU Casuarina Campus Nursing Lab 2 Blue 5.1.48 (formerly 23.1.48) Monday 19th to Friday 23rd May and Nursing Lab 1 Blue 5.1.N15 (formerly 23.1.N15) from Monday 26th to Friday 30th May.

The ‘Top End Cohort Study’ is a new and exciting look at the physical and emotional wellbeing of adolescents born in Darwin between the years of 1987 – 1990.

Project leader, Dr. Gurmeet Singh, says “The clinic is a full health check up with the emphasis being on your choice.”

“We offer a range of checks - include body measurements, taking your weight, blood pressure and ultrasounds of your kidneys, thyroid and carotid (artery in your neck) - but the decision about which checks to take part in is yours,” said Dr Singh.
