A new cycle campaign and new cycle research to keep you going after the Aotearoa cycle challenge!
ANA is pleased to introduce Alison Pask as our health promotion manager following on from Annaleise Goble. Alison started in her role earlier this week.
Alison has over 25 years’ experience as a dietitian and in health promotion within New Zealand. She has had an interesting career which has included working for the Heart Foundation, Diabetes NZ and the TVNZ Good Morning programme.
