ANA Conference Keynote Speaker Announced!

We are pleased to announce confirmation of our first keynote speaker at the ANA conference: Dr Isaac Warbrick.

Dr Isaac Warbrick (Ngāti Te Ata, Ngāti Rangitihi, Ngā Puhi) is an exercise physiologist, Māori health researcher, and director of Taupua Waiora Centre for Māori Health Research at AUT. His research explores the application of Māori knowledge and whakapapa within contemporary health settings, and the value of cultural reconnection for health.

Find out more about Dr Isaac Warbrick.

NEW! ANA Submissions Page

ANA has added a new section called ‘Submissions’ to the website. You will find this in the drop down box under ‘Resources’.

This page will inform you of current submissions relevant to the nutrition and physical activity public health workforce in Aotearoa. This section on the ANA website is a one stop shop for information related to writing submissions relevant to public health nutrition and physical activity. On this page you can read new articles on writing effective submissions and find useful links that will help with the submission making process.

Please let Alison know of new content that could be added to this page (alison[at]

Is Sleep the New Black?

We all know the consequences of too many late nights as we force ourselves out of bed.

Be in the know, keep it low

Stroke Foundation NZ will this year run its 10th annual blood pressure campaign on Saturday 6th October 2018.
