Notices from the Health Promotion Forum: July 2020

Wednesday, July 22, 2020   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, health promotion, webinar, forum

Kia ora and greetings. As HPF celebrates Matariki and, welcomes in the New Year we are pleased to announce that we will be launching a new series of webinars from next month.

These webinars follow a series of webinars HPF converted from our face-to-face workshops during Covid-19 and to which the response was overwhelming! The webinars will cover Maori, Pacific and international topics as well as health promotion tools and resources. 

HPF's online courses on Determinants,  Māori health promotion, Pasifika health promotion, and mainstream health promotion are also just a click away.

And remember we want to promote our members' work, we want to tell your stories, promote your events/courses and advertise any vacancies you may have in health promotion in our notice/newsletter and social media platforms.  We will be in touch with you shortly with more details.

Be sure to check our Facebook page and website for regular updates on these webinars and topical stories and messages. And remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel for the latest webinars and other videos.

Watch this space: New webinars

HPF’s workshops for the professional development of your staff will come to you from next month in the form of webinars.

The first webinar - “Key aspects of effective Maori Health Promotion - tools to help us improve Maori health outcomes” will be held on Monday 24th August 2020 from 11am to 12.30pm. A panui will be sent out soon with registration details, costs and more details.

Topics, dates and times for the webinars - which will be offered at reasonable rates - will soon be made available.
