Following the success of the last two oversubscribed Māori Public Health Symposia, the Public Health Association will host a third Māori Public Health Symposium, this time in Auckland.
The theme, Māori Public Health: Business - Innovation - Health, invites creative conversation about the solutions we design in public health, embracing business, Māori development and new ways of funding to have more freedom in defining the future of Māori public health.
This is a workshop-style symposium with savvy aspirational leaders from health, business, research and successful youth-driven initiatives. Our speakers include Dr Amohia Boulton (Whakauae Research Services), Laura O’Connell-Rapira (ActionStation) and Phil Clarke (Post Haste). Other speakers will be announced shortly.
Questions regarding the Māori Public Health Symposium should be directed to Adrian Te Patu, Symposium Convenor.
The symposium is on Monday 19th June at the Waipuna Conference Centre. Free parking is available on site.
