Looking Back as well as Forward: A History of Ballarat Community Health, written by Leanne Howard and Keir Reeves, was launched at Ballarat Community Health at Lucas late last year.
Dating back to 1975 in one form or another, Ballarat Community Health has a rich history and is an integral part of the community and individuals' lives. Its wide-ranging impact was shown in the number of people who came out for the book launch.
Local MP Geoff Howard (is he related to the author, does anyone know??) also made an appearance, pictured here with Robyn Reeves, CEO of Ballarat Community Health.
WIN News were also in attendance, interviewing author Leanne Howard.
As well as the new book, there was also a collection of old newspaper clippings and articles on display highlighting some significant events of BCH throughout its lifespan and general information regarding health and wellbeing.
The book was compiled by Federation Uni's Collaborative Research Centre for Australian History.
