Pit Stop is a program designed by Queensland Health which is run in partnership with the Queensland Department of Gastroenterology.

Talking about health issues or going for a checkup is not common amongst men, so the Pit Stop program uses the parts of a racing car as accessible metaphors to discuss men’s health issues. The event comprised of several ‘check points’ that assessed the health of attendees. This included oil pressure (blood pressure), chassis (waist measurement), fuel additives (alcohol intake), exhaust pipe (smoking), spark plugs (testicular cancer), gearbox (cervical screening), extractor (bowel cancer), headlights (breast cancer), duco (skin check), shock absorbers (mental health and wellbeing), fuel system (nutrition) and roadworthiness (general health).
