Multidisciplinary Albury Rural Health Society
MARHS is the Rural Health Club of Charles Sturt University, Albury. MARHS was established in 1999 and consists of members from several disciplines including Speech Pathology, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Occupational Therapy, Health and Rehabilitation, and Nursing.
MARHS is an active club that focuses on getting out and about to promote health. Our activities include Rural High School Visits, Indigenous schools festivals, an annual Close the Gap event, Mental Health First Aid courses, student presentation nights, and social networking events including our annual Bush Bash Ball. We are also involved in many interclub and national activities and conferences, giving members positive rural experiences and a greater appreciation of rural and Indigenous health issues.
Getting involved in MARHS provides opportunities to meet a great group of people, learn about rural health issues, and make a difference in the community. MARHS members are enthusiastic, innovative, and passionate about rural health issues. We endeavour to network and build closer relations with other rural health clubs, combining to achieve greater outcomes for rural health.
