Invitation
Healthier Lives 2016 Kōrero Tahi
The Healthier Lives team warmly invites you to join us at our inaugural Kōrero Tahi in Wellington on Tuesday 18 October 2016
 
Registrations for this free public event are now open.  As spaces are limited, I encourage you to book early.
Healthier Lives 2016 Kōrero Tahi will be a day for researchers, policy makers and health practitioners to come together to focus on the issues facing New Zealand from the rising tide of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

We thought about what to call this event and settled on Kōrero Tahi or ‘talking together’.  We need to talk together, from our different perspectives, about how to reduce the burden of the major NCDs – cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity – not only on New Zealand’s economy but also in the lives of the increasing number of New Zealanders who are suffering from one or more of these diseases. 

A number of eminent stakeholders and experts will set the scene for the Kōrero Tahi by talking about NCDs from various perspectives: global, national, Māori and Pasifika, and disease-specific. Healthier Lives researchers will introduce their research-in-progress and share what they have learnt so far.  Your presence will add the vital ingredient – questions, answers and ultimately a conversation about how to reduce the impact of NCDs.

How can we implement the knowledge we already have?  What can we learn from the international experience?  Where are the gaps in our knowledge that future research can answer? 

I very much hope you will join us at the Kōrero Tahi to share your commitment, experience and ideas about how to tackle one of the toughest health challenges of our times.

Nāku, nā
Jim Mann
