In Magda’s Big National Health Check, Magda Szubanski takes a deep dive into the state of our health while reflecting on her own.
Over three episodes, Szubanski embarks on an immersive and personal journey to discover what health looks like in Australia today, seeking answers about how we can improve our chances of a healthy life in the lucky country.
In her search, she meets everyday Australians and experts who offer real hope for us all to take action.
Szubanski identifies the biggest risks to our health – and immerses herself in finding the solutions we need. She reveals how we can work as a community towards better health – and challenges government to be part of the solution
