2019 PHA Policy Forum
Nau mai, haere mai!
You are warmly invited to our 2019 Policy Forum.
This year's Policy Forum is a chance to hear about policy–making in action, listen to a number of engaging speakers, hear about our latest policy statements (see links below) to be presented at our AGM and participate in our policy workshop café (not forgetting the delicious morning tea).
We are delighted to announce that our guest speaker this year is Dr Nicki Jackson, Director of Alcohol Healthwatch since 2017, and a tireless advocate for better policy on alcohol in NZ.
Nicki has extensive academic and practice experience in health promotion and alcohol harm reduction. She has been involved in developing and delivering training in evidence-based public health in Australia, she lead the AUT Health Promotion undergraduate degree, and managed the alcohol and tobacco regulatory and health promotion activities of the Auckland Regional Public Health Service.
In 2016, she completed her PhD investigating adolescent alcohol use in New Zealand and won the University of Auckland Vice Chancellor's Excellence Award for best Doctoral thesis. She is also an Honorary Academic at the University of Auckland.
All welcome, including non-PHA members.
