Tonic Health Media and Elevate to offer free skin cancer checks to agency staff

Tonic health media and Elevate have launched a program offering skin cancer checks for media agency staff across the country.

The announcement:

Tonic Health Media and Elevate Run Agency Skin Check Campaign to Tackle Cancer ‘Skin Cancer Checks’’ are part of Tonic’s Healthy Living Program

Tonic Health Media, Australia’s leading health and wellbeing network has partnered with Elevate to run a campaign to help combat skin cancer for staff within media agencies across the country.

Melanoma kills more young Australians between the ages of 20-39 than any other single cancer*, and many media agency staff fall within this age demographic.

In response, Tonic is partnering with Elevate to offer free skin cancer checks at media agencies in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The skin checks will be conducted onsite at each media agency by Elevate’s General Practitioners.

These skin cancer checks reinforce Tonic’s commitment to health and wellness within the media and advertising industries, following on from the successful agency meditation sessions ‘Stillness’, Yoga program ‘Tonic Flow’ and healthy eating initiative ‘Tonic Agency Cook Off’.

Tonic Health Media Commercial Director, Jack Mortlock, said: “As summer fast approaches, it’s the perfect opportunity for agency staff to get their skin checked and actively think about their sun safety,”

“Melanoma is the most common cancer in young Australians aged between 15 and 39, making up 20% of all their cancer cases*.

“The skin checks are designed to provide reassurance and if the doctor finds an area of concern, they will provide a referral for an appointment with a skin specialist.

“Elevate is the perfect partner to deliver these important skin cancer checks as part of our Healthy Living Program, given their clinical expertise, wholistic approach to health and strong reputation,” Jack Mortlock, said.

Elevate’s CEO, Brookes McTavish, said “Tonic Health Media leads the field in innovative and accessible health and medical media in Australia. Skin cancer is one of those preventable diseases where education and information have a real impact and we’re delighted to support Tonic in this great initiative.”

Tonic and Elevate expect hundreds of media agency staff to participate in the skin checks from over 30 agencies. For more information about the Tonic skin checks contact marketing@tonichealthmedia.com.au.
