Health promotion resources from Medibank

Medibank are upping their game when it comes to health promotion. In this post are a range of links to health promotion resources relevant to Medibank customers, international students and a few links relevant to everyone. Reading time ~ 4 minutes.

Medibank are one of the primary insurers providing overseas health care cover (OSHC) for international students.

I’ve noticed in recent months they’ve been producing (or perhaps promoting) more health and mental health related content. You can actually view past mentions of Medibank here on the blog via this link.

I thought I’d reproduce some of their recent content below. There is stuff on OSHC, relieving stress, sources of legal help for international students, eating well, resources on their app and details of a podcast on loneliness.

Whilst likely of primary interest to international students (particularly those using Medibank as an insurer), some of the content (e.g. relieving stress and eating well) is relevant to all.

Enjoy! And I’ll keep posting content as they send it through.
