The Future is Now 2019 Symposium

Dr J Bay & Prof Mark Vickers Dr. Jacquie Bay & Prof. Mark Vickers

 

 

The Healthy Start Workforce team delivered a very well attended full day symposium for health practitioners on 9th April at the Kohia Centre in Auckland. 

Professor Wayne Cutfield, Dr. Jacquie Bay (pictured left), Professor Mark Vickers (pictured), and Dr. Anna Serlachius enlightened participants on the developmental origins of health and disease as well as the direction of the obesity pandemic and how health service providers can shift their practice in response to this.

Susan Miller and Mary Cavanagh also facilitated the participants through Healthy Start’s highly interactive workshop – Healthy Conversation Skills – which develops practical tools and strategies to use in supporting patients to make lasting lifestyle behaviour changes.

Thank you to all those that attended, we look forward to holding more seminars for you in the future.
