NZ Population Health Congress - October

Join us in October for the

NZ Population Health Congress

Aotea Centre, Auckland

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.

The Congress will be a very important event in New Zealand's population health calendar this year. It will provide a variety of opportunities to learn, discuss and debate advances in areas of population health thinking and practise such as child poverty, housing, nutrition, obesity and climate change.

The programme will include a range of training options. There will also be opportunities to expand your use of the internet and social media to help equip you with essential population health competencies to practice 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 healthy, enjoyable social events.

The Congress is expected to attract interest and input from a broad range of cultural, scientific, policy and population health experts and decision-makers, along with many who work at the population health coal-face.

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.

Register your interest and find out more at the Congress website: www.pophealthcongress.org.nz
