Pandemic Influenza Roadshow in Suuthland November

Wednesday 5 November 2008

Pandemic Influenza Roadshow on Display throughout Southland during November

An interactive roadshow promoting how to protect yourself and your family from seasonal influenza, and the ongoing risk of an influenza pandemic, will be on display at various locations throughout Southland during November.

The Southland District Health Board (SDHB) and Southland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group have jointly hired the Pandemic Influenza Roadshow display from the Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency Management Group.

SDHB Emergency Planner Sandra Miller said the display is a valuable tool for highlighting how the community can keep influenza out of the workplace and their homes and was suitable for all ages.

“The roadshow experience is open to the whole community and features educational videos, information pamphlets and competitions, as well as health professionals on the spot to share their knowledge and give advice.”

She said invitations had also been distributed to key groups including health providers, primary and secondary schools, Civil Defence Emergency Management personnel and elderly support groups.

The Pandemic Interactive Roadshow will be operating during each of the venue’s normal operating hours and by appointment.

Anyone interested in booking a session should contact Sandra Miller on 027 600 6394.

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
