Stunning Summer School line-up

Otago University’s Summer School will be bringing its popular Pacific Health course to Auckland for the first time on February 14 next year.

The course is one of an outstanding line-up of 32 courses, including 14 new ones in Wellington from February 10 – 28.

HPF’s Dr Viliami Puloka and Dr Moira Smith are coordinating the Introduction to Pacific health: Approaches for action course, which looks at key concepts, issues and effective actions in Pacific health from evidence and community-based perspectives.

Fran Wright, who is on the organising team said one of the reasons for holding the course in Auckland was because they wanted to make the course, which was always very popular, more accessible to people.

Ms Wright said there was already a good uptake for the course, which will be run in Wellington on February 10, and encouraged those who were interested to take advantage of the 25 per cent discount with early-bird rates which expire on December 19.

“We are expecting a number of courses to fill up early so register now to ensure you don’t miss out.”

The summer school has been providing this training for more than 20 years and has grown to become the largest and longest running summer school of its type in the Southern Hemisphere.
