Save the Date: NZ Population Health Congress

February 26, 2014 at 5:59 PM

The New Zealand College of Public Health Medicine, the Public Health Association and the Health Promotion Forum warmly welcome you to the inaugural New Zealand Population Health Congress.

Save this date.

Dates: 6-8 October 2014

Venue: Aotea Centre

This major event in New Zealand’s population health calendar will showcase interests and inputs from a broad range of cultural, scientific, policy and population health experts and decision-makers, along with population health practitioners at the coal-face.

It will discuss and debate advances in areas of population health thinking and practice such as child poverty, housing, nutrition, indigenous health and climate change.

There will also be training options and opportunities to expand your use of the internet and social media to help equip you with essential population health competencies to practise effectively in the 21st Century.

At the Congress you can expect to:

  • engage with challenging and influential local and international speakers
  • share your work and learn alongside a diverse range of participants from across public health and other  sectors with shared concerns
  • be exposed to new ideas, research and experience
  • become better equipped to help improve health and health equity in the communities you work with
  • relax and network at enjoyable social events.

We will also be ‘walking the talk’ with healthy food, opportunities for exercise, and environmental sustainability built into the programme.

You won’t want to miss it, and we look forward to seeing you there.  A call for abstracts will be circulated shortly.
