2016 Kōrero Tahi
Researchers, communities, practitioners and policymakers building healthier communities together
The Healthier Lives National Science Challenge invites you to join us for our inaugural kōrero tahi.
Working together to address non-communicable diseases
This is an opportunity for researchers, community representatives, health practitioners and policymakers to talk together about global and national perspectives on the rise of non-communicable diseases and, importantly, how we can combat this together.
Hear from leading experts
Expert stakeholders will present a range of policy and practitioner perspectives on non-communicable diseases from both community-wide and disease-specific standpoints. Five leading researchers from Healthier Lives will outline the research the Challenge has initiated across its core research programmes:
- A Māori and Pasifika mHealth approach (WellTEXT)
- Circulating tumour DNA biomarkers for cancer detection (‘liquid biopsy’)
- Predicting cardiovascular disease and diabetes
- He Pikinga Waiora (making health interventions work for Māori communities)
- Capitalising on health data
Share your views with our team
There will be plenty of time for formal and informal discussion about work in progress, new plans, and identifying gaps in our knowledge that need to be addressed through future research.
