Canada's 2019 Food Guide

Canada's new 2019 Food Guide has officially been announced after five years of preparation.

ANA Health Promotion Manager Alison Pask says "I'm delighted to see the guide states healthy eating is more than the foods you eat. It is also about where, when, why and how you eat. There is even a statement to warn that food marketing can influence your choices. The messages are simple and encouraging without recommending amounts of foods to eat each day".

ANA Conference Accommodation Special

Book accommodation before Sunday 10th February to get the special accommodation price of $199 per night for a double room.

Māori Health Research Grant

Developing Māori capability and knowledge is the prime focus of Ngā Kanohi Kitea community research grants. The grants provide opportunities for iwi, hapū and other community groups to address community-identified health needs.

Congratulations Patricia Harry
