Meet our nine Southern Champions!
They come from all walks of life, yet are united by their shared belief in the importance of looking after our health through bowel screening.
From August 2018, the Champions' Campaign will be running on the backs of buses, in newspaper ads and online, to help encourage more people to take part in the National Bowel Screening Programme.
Southern DHB would like to sincerely thank each on of our Champions. Your courage in sharing your story has been inspiring and humbling and we hope that it will help us to save more lives in the future.
